Can Cold Weather Be A Factor With Chronic Pain In Your Lower Back?
As we head into the holidays, the weather starts to change. As the temperature drops, aches and pains may become a frequent occurrence.
Without a proper warm up and stretching, activities like snow shoveling and even prolonged standing can trigger low back pain, knee pain and other injuries.
It is important to remember that blood flow to muscles and joints decreases as a direct result of reduced activity. In addition, the abundance of food during the holidays may result in some additional weight gain. Therefore, it is crucial to stay active, keep the blood circulation going, and burn extra calories during the winter.
It is common knowledge that structured individualized medical exercise programs help in the treatment of injuries, but did you know that injury prevention becomes crucial during the winter?
