Cold Weather Advice From the Chiropractor

By Brandi Goodman  

Cold days are inevitable during the winter months. Even for the states that don't see regular snow, there are usually still enough cold days to keep you stuck indoors for a spell. The harsh weather can lead to a build-up of pressure that makes your joints ache. Keep some chiropractic advice in mind to help get you through it.

Make Sure to Stretch

The stress that the cold weather puts on your body can be avoided. Stretch out well and keep your blood vessels open and your muscles relaxed. The cold can narrow and tighten them, causing inflammation and discomfort. Anytime you're ready to head outside, stretch out well first so the cold doesn't have such a harsh effect on you. Even if all you're planning to do is go outside and salt the ice on your driveway, you should still stretch first to avoid potential injury and pain.

Drink Plenty of Water

Your body needs water to thrive no matter the weather. During the cold season, you may find yourself failing to drink as much water as you might have during the hot weather. Make sure you're drinking plenty so you can keep your joints limber and your bodily systems functioning well. There are plenty of ways to infuse it for an enhanced flavor if you don't like it plain.

Swim

You don't have to go outdoors, but an indoor swimming solution can do a lot of good for your body in the winter. Swimming is a great form of cardio that doesn't cause as much trouble for your joints. It can really help you loosen up and get the physical activity you need to keep yourself in good shape. If there's a hot tub available, sit in there as well for some extra relaxation.

Get Routine Chiropractic

Of course, nothing helps more than a trip to the chiropractor. Start getting routine chiropractic during the winter season to always stay on top of joint health. The doctor of chiropractic can aid you in reducing joint stiffness, correcting subluxations, and making sure no joint restrictions are in place. Regular assessments are wise for prevention.

Get ready for the cold season by having this chiropractic advice in mind. You'll be better able to handle the harsh weather when you know how to keep your joints from aching so badly.
