If you live with an arthritic condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, you might notice that you experience significantly more pain during the colder months. Unfortunately, this often leads to many people avoiding active lifestyle hobbies during the winter months.
Even without any specific condition, most of us are very aware how the body seems to seize up when we are cold, thus causing us to move slower when the muscles become tense and stiff. So, YES, new research does confirm that the cold itself can be responsible for causing muscle stiffness and subsequent injury from poor flexibility. The key is to begin exercising when the muscles are warm, and keep them moving until you're done physical activity. Don't start with cold muscles and don't let them cool down during your workout.
Here's some helpful tips:
Maintain an Active Lifestyle. Keep those muscles and joints moving regularly!
Everyday at Chiro Clinic Moncton, I consult many patients who either spend too much time sitting or are sitting inappropriately altogether. This video will highlight the importance of good seated posture to avoid discomfort and future injury.
Protect your spine and avoid unnecessary strain on the discs, joints, and muscles.
Be proactive! Sit up straight!
If you are having trouble maintaining upright erect posture while sitting, Chiro Clinic Moncton can help. Call (506) 852-3900 to arrange an appointment or visit www.ChiroClinicMoncton.ca for more information.
Everyday at Chiro Clinic Moncton, I consult patients experiencing knee discomfort. Interestingly, many people are unaware that chiropractors are able to treat knee problems - but in actual fact I enjoy managing any musculoskeletal problem, including hips, ankles, shoulders, elbows, and wrists as well.
Top 3 Knee Problems seen at Chiro Clinic Moncton:
1. ITB (Iliotibial Band) Syndrome: Typically a problem for runners, this causes pain on the outside of the knee joint, due to repetitive flicking of a tendon over bone or irritation of underlying fat pads. Inflammation occurs and pain begins.
2. Jumper's Knee: Inflammation or injury to the patellar tendon of rectus femoris, where the knee cap connects to the tibia shin bone.
3. Meniscus Tear: This rubbery disc that cushions the knee joint may be torn by twisting or turning quickly when standing, or due to old age deterioration of the tissue itself.
