The Weather and your Spine

Isn’t the weather we are having just fantastic? I am thinking that it is ALMOST enough to make me forget about the first three months of the year.

Often we are asked if the weather has anything to do with any aches and pains we encounter, the short answer is yes, often.

Cold weather makes muscles tighter and slower to loosen up in the morning. Changes in air pressure can leave the joint pressure relatively high or low and so lead to swollen joints. Some types of weather seem to stress some individuals and so put the nervous system on edge. Our state of physical well-being is influenced my MANY factors in the environment.

Rather than worrying too much about the weather maybe we should just be taking this fine weather opportunity to get fitter and so make ourselves less vulnerable to the vagaries of the North Coast cloud patterns.

and as always….remember to SMILE.
