It’s that time of year again when temperatures drop and the aches and pains appear to get worse. Is it real, or is it just your imagination? We’re here to assure you that you’re not imagining things. Seasonal disorders are a very real occurrence that affect plenty of people every year. Naturally, there’s a scientific explanation for your increased discomfort. Consider the following factors that play a significant role in seasonal symptoms:

  • Lower Atmospheric Pressure. Strange as it may sound, the weather can have a profound effect on your joints. If you’ve ever paid attention to a barometer reading in your area, then you know that the atmospheric pressure tends to drop when it gets cold in the winter. When the pressure drops, your joints have more opportunity to expand, causing more friction and compression within your body.
  • Reduced Muscle Elasticity. Sore muscles are quite common in the winter. Cooler temperatures cause your muscles to shrink and contract, making them less elastic than they might in the warmer months. This sudden stiffness may render even simple movement more challenging.
  • Decreased Blood Flow. Your circulation slows down when you get cold. That’s why you may experience some numbness or tenderness in your extremities during the winter.

While you may have resigned yourself to the aches and pains of the season, chiropractic care can actually help alleviate some of the discomfort. In fact, chiropractic is more important than ever during the colder months. Here at DiBella Chiropractic Center, we help our patients feel like themselves again. Let us walk you through some of the benefits that come with regular treatment:

  • Restore Mobility. Stiff, sore muscles can severely decrease your quality of life. Chiropractic care employs stretching techniques that help to improve mobility and restore full range of motion, even during the winter.
  • Minimize Joint Pain. Whether it’s your knees, your elbows, or your fingers, joint pain can be just as debilitating as stiff muscles. Chiropractic adjustments help to loosen everything in the body, leaving plenty of room for your joints to function without any friction.
  • Boost Immunity. Fortunately, chiropractic care does more than just address ongoing aches and pains that pop up this time of year. It’s also preventative in that it helps your body defend against viruses, like the flu and the common cold. Keep yourself healthy so you can enjoy everything the season has to offer.

It’s not too late to get started with chiropractic care. We want to see you living free of seasonal symptoms, and DiBella Chiropractic Center is here to help you achieve that goal. Reach out and schedule an appointment with us today!
