Winter Weather: More Aches and Pains?

West Seattle, WA cold weather comes with aches and pains for many of our patients. Why do some people feel more pain in cold weather?

Differences in barometric pressure might be one culprit. Pain patients are also fairly sensitive to any kind of painful stimulus, like colder temps, and that might also be why some people experience more discomfort in the winter season.

While we are unable to influence the weather conditions, we can do some things to ease the pain 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 chilly out and the humidity is low, it's easy to get dehydrated. Drink lots of water during the cold months of winter.
  • 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 wintertime, but, more importantly, help solve the root problem producing 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 surgical procedures, give our West Seattle, WA office a call today at (206) 258-4886 for an appointment.
