Winter Aches and Pains
The cold winter weather is here! Many of our arthritic aches and pains will be worse than ever in our joints. Unfortunately it doesn’t help that when it's cold we tend to do less exercise. This lack of exercise makes our arthritic joints even stiffer.
To stop our painful, stiff arthritic joints from seizing up completely, we need to exercise them. During long cold days spent inside, with our heads deep in a book or binge watching TV, it can be hard to exercise. However we need to break up these days with a little exercise because exercise helps oil the joints and reduces the stiffness. The added advantage of a little exercise is it’s good for the rest of our body and our mind.
Here are few tips from our friendly physiotherapists:
If this seems too much, how about putting your phone and TV remote a few steps away from your chair and getting up and walking around the house every hour.
Remember the Rule of thumb – move whenever you can
