Don't Suffer from Aches and Pains Associated with Cold Weather

Gadsden, AL is finally seeing our first cold weather of the year and with it comes aches and pains for many of our patients. Why do some people feel more pain in cold weather?

Variations in barometric pressure might be one cause. Pain patients are also fairly sensitive to any kind of painful provocation, like colder temps, and that might also be why some folks experience more pain in the winter.

Although we can't control the seasons, we can do some things to alleviate the discomfort from the colder temperatures:

  • Get some exercise. Nothing warms up your body like physical exercise, plus it helps improve your spirits and keeps you healthy!
  • Stay hydrated. When it's cold out and the humidity is low, it's easy to get dehydrated. Drink lots of water during the winter weather.
  • Heat therapy. A heating pad can really do a lot to reduce aches and pains.
  • See your chiropractor! We're trained to help people with musculoskeletal pain and conditions, and we can help not only ease the aches and discomforts of winter, but, more importantly, help resolve the root problem causing the pain in the first place.

Chiropractic is safe and effective for so many ailments. If you'd like to get out of pain without medications and/or surgical procedures, give our Gadsden, AL office a call today at (256) 543-3033 for an appointment.
