Staying Pain-Free Year Round is Easy with Chiropractic

By Stepy Kamei

I'm sure there are more than a few of us who remember growing up listening to an elder in the family or neighborhood complain about the changing weather causing aches and pains in the joints and throughout his or her body. The jury is still out when it comes to determining whether this type of prediction is truthful, but the idea of weather patterns affecting a person's body is something important to take into consideration when it comes to assessing your overall health and wellness. In the same way people experience seasonal allergies, seasonal aches and pains are a real health concern as well

Why Do You Get Aches and Pains Seasonally?

There are a few key reasons why some people may experience worse feelings of pain during certain times of the year. Most people who experience seasonal aches tend to suffer from cluster headaches. These are not the same as migraines, yet they can be debilitating, and they are brought on by changes to a person's internal clock. As the weather changes and we set our clocks back or forward, the body's natural circadian rhythm becomes suddenly disrupted. The changes in the amount of sunlight a person is exposed to can often bring about cluster headaches, or an increase of pain in the joints or back. In addition to this disruption to natural sleep-wake cycles, some people may experience worsening stress during certain seasons, especially winter, which can make physical pain more noticeable. 

Ways to Take Action

Fortunately, you can take action to better protect yourself from this issue. Living a healthier lifestyle overall can help your body adapt to weather changes at a smoother rate. Exercise regularly and eat a diet filled with wholesome, nutritious foods to make sure your energy levels are stable, which will help you get better sleep in the long run. People who are well-rested tend to enjoy fewer physical health issues.

Make sure you're cutting back on habits which increase inflammation (and therefore pain), such as eating sugary foods or not managing stress properly. You may also want to consider taking up chiropractic care as a healthy lifestyle choice. At The Joint Chiropractic clinics, you can start to receive regular spinal adjustments which may bring about immediate pain relief, as well as fortify your body so it's better protected from future instances of aches, pains, and general discomfort. Go into a clinic near you -- no appointment necessary -- and get started on living a healthier life on your own terms.
