Pain can happen for many different reasons. Although pain is never fun, it is an unfortunate fact of life that many of us have to deal with from day to day. Those of us who suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis or fibromyalgia are all too aware of this reality and we are used to having to muddle and suffer through our bad days. Unfortunately, with the arrival of fall, the weather begins to change to something that may trigger more and more pain for those who already are dealing with higher levels than most. Although the fall may be lovely due to what nature does, it doesn’t always reflect that beauty into our bodies that struggle against joint or nerve disorders.
The fall begins to bring colder temperatures which, for many, are considered a trigger to their pain. It has been discovered that those with conditions such as fibromyalgia are found to be in higher levels of more consistent pain during the colder months. Anyone who has one of these conditions will normally dislike the fall and winter for this reason, even if it is their favorite season in any other category.
Autumn also brings about the most active part of hurricane season. Even if you are not hit with a hurricane, the added dampness that comes with fall also plays havoc with many of our joints. There is a specific chill that comes around this time of year and it is made to feel worse by the rain that can hit at any moment. Along much of the east coast this week, it is meant to rain an extreme amount. While for some places this is wonderful news, it also can cause severe discomfort to those of us who deal with these conditions.
The season of fall can be a lovely experience for so many. Pumpkin patches, jumping in leaf piles, corn mazes, and other fun seasonal things are always a great way to spend time with our friends and family. Unfortunately, sometimes the pain is just too much. Try coming in to Wirth Chiropractic and see if a couple of adjustments can help you feel good enough to go out and run around with everyone else and experience everything that autumn has to offer. We hope you have a safe and fun season!
