Rainy Day: Weather Pains
August 26, 2016
For years, people have been saying that they can tell a storm is approaching, simply by the pain they are feeling in their bones.
How many times did grandma swear that she knew it was going to rain because her old broken arm was acting up?
Many people who suffer from ailments such as arthritis, bone injuries, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel syndrome commonly report moderate pain when a weather front is approaching.
Although the causes are still largely unknown, there is some agreement that barometric pressure likely has something to do with the weather pain phenomenon.
Changes in barometric pressure and temperature may increase stiffness in the joints and trigger subtle movements that heighten a nociceptive response. Change in barometric pressure may also cause a transient "disequilibrium" in body pressure that may sensitize nerve endings and account for increased pain preceding changes in temperature or humidity.
As for weather-related pain, it hurts, but it's only temporary: Your joints should return to normal as soon as the weather changes.
Let us help you deal with the many issues that cause weather pains. The experienced professional staff at Dynamic Rehabilitation Services has specialized programs to help lessen the pain and difficulty associated with many of these ailments.
