Vaping and Its Effects on Spine Health


No matter your age, neither vaping nor cigarette smoking is good for the spine. But the harm can be reversed.

For years, the use of electronic vaping devices or e-cigarettes has been recommended to people to “kick the habit” of traditional cigarette smoking.

The e-cigarette was created in 2003 by a Chinese pharmacist, to serve as an alternative to conventional smoking.

To be sure, devices that electronically introduce nicotine into the body may contain fewer chemicals than the smoke inhaled from burned tobacco products. However, these devices don’t have zero chemicals, and the health effects of those they do contain can be debilitating – including on the spine.

Adverse Effects on Spine Health

To date, the research on the adverse health effects of e-cigarettes and vaping devices isn’t as voluminous as what’s available about cigarette smoking. To be fair to scientific researchers, such devices have been known to the public for less than 20 years. Though that can seem like a long time, it isn’t when it comes to long-term research studies.

In addition, many of the liquids found in e-smoking devices aren’t tested for toxicity in the same way that those contained in cigarettes have been. However, though limited, the research we do have is compelling enough to encourage everyone away from any and all nicotine delivery devices.
