8 Amazing Tips to Get Relief from Joint Pain this Winter

(Last Updated On: July 28, 2017)

As winter sets in the city, people with arthritis are bracing themselves for joint pain. The sad fact is, those with arthritis experience worsening of symptoms with changing weather conditions.


With plummeting temperatures, our body limits the amount of blood it sends to organ extremities such as those of hand and feet so that relatively greater quantity of blood can flow into the heart and lungs. The agonizing joint pain is often the direct result of this less than usual blood supply. There is corroborative research evidence from Tufts University, which suggests that the cold season can bring about painful changes in joint fluid thickness. A few other studies have also found a strong relationship between short, wet and cold days and arthritis flare-ups.

A section of the scientific community believes that pain in winter is often linked to barometric pressure. Barometric pressure is the pressure exerted by the weight of the atmosphere. In winter, there is a reduction in the pressure exerted by the air around us. This drop in pressure can cause the tissues around the joints to swell and  put pressure on nerves that control pain signals.

Another important fact is that winter and wet weather conditions can make it all the more difficult to manage the pain symptoms. Here are a few tips and techniques, which can help you to cope with joints that pain:
