Tips For Managing Joint Pain in Winter

Tips For Managing Joint Pain in Winter

People who suffer from arthritis are more likely to experience osteoarthritis symptoms. The intensity of the feeling of knee pain in winter is often linked to barometric pressure. 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 resulting in increased pain. The other possible cause of knee pain in winter can be explained from the influence of heat. Fluid in tissues becomes more viscous during winter. As a result of this increased viscosity, the elasticity of the muscles decreases, resulting in winter aches and pains. 

Some scientists believe that the higher pain intensity in winter is to be more of a psychological thing. Seasonal affective disorder is more during winter, and people suffering from mental depression seem to sense more pain during winter as the weather restricts outdoor activities. Improper intake of food also causes knee pain in winter due to undigested material. Even though winter arthritis is uncomfortable, the following tips help to make the joints work better and make you withstand the season easier.

Tips to Manage Joint Pain in Winters

  1. Physical activity in winter can reduce winter aches and pains and enhance overall health benefits. Low impact activities like aerobics, swimming in a heated pool, weight training, and riding a stationary bicycle can reduce stiffness, increase the blood flow, and support the knees. Thus, winter arthritis can be well managed by doing exercises.
  2. Diet also plays a vital role. Eating a balanced diet that comprised of low saturated fat, lean proteins, more fiber, and refined carbs helps to improve body functions during the winter. Drinking water throughout the day helps to reduce winter aches and pains. It is essential to consume easily digestible foods like vegetables. Consuming vegetables like carrots and cucumbers that have diuretic properties can help to eliminate waste products from the body.
  3. Vitamin D deficiency may worsen osteoarthritis. It is necessary to take a supplement vitamin D or ensure to make your diet is vitamin-D rich. Fish oil is a potent source of omega 3 fatty acids. Increase your intake of milk, a rich source of protein and calcium that help to strengthen the bones. Exposing the body to sunlight help to obtain vitamin D.
  4. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen can be used to reduce inflammation and pain. Injecting a viscous substance can decrease the friction of the bones and ease the condition.

Home Remedies for Knee Pain in Winters

  1. Wrap the inflamed knees with blanched cabbage leaves. This can cool down inflamed knees. Aloe vera also helps to reduce inflammation.
  2. Comfrey (symphytum officinale) can act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Create a compress using mashed root or comfrey tea soaked bandages can also be used to reduce inflammation.
  3. Applying an ice-pack can help to reduce swelling and alleviate winter aches and pains. While applying ice-pack, ensure to cover the entire knee. Applying a bag of frozen peas to the area also works well. While using ice or heat therapy, make sure to do them carefully as over agressive and over doing it, can cause problems. 
  4. Steam therapy also helps to reduce pain in your knees. Soak your knee in a steaming hot water for 15 minutes. Applying hot water bag also can relieve knee pain in winter effectively.
  5. Winter aches and pains all over the body can be relieved by administrating massage therapy by a professional.
  6. Avoid applying strain or pressure on your knees. Take adequate amount of rest to reduce pain and swelling.

These are basic guidelines to help you. Contact your doctor for further management.

Hi lybrate-usertips for weight loss eat fresh vegetables daily. Avoid having sugar completely. Eat whole wheat bread instead of white bread; avoid everything made from white flour and make whole wheat bread, chapattis and brown rice a way of life. Do not skip a meal and eat three meals a day. Drink plenty of water to eliminate the toxins from the system. Limit your fat intake to 2-3 teaspoons a day. Increase the fiber intake as it provides a sense of fullness and also prevents hunger pangs. Take antioxidants for protecting the body against the toxins released during weight loss. Exercise catalyzes your efforts to lose weight and even regular walking for thirty minutes can give you the benefits of an aerobics exercise. To improve the metabolism, try increasing the duration, frequency, intensity of your daily workout. Remember that maintaining the ideal weight is a lifetime commitment and not a short-term affair. Firmly believe that the pleasure of being trim and healthy is far better than the pleasure of eating unwisely.

Heel pain ( Calcinitis ) also known as plantar facitis especially in the morning is commonly seen in young adults. It does not require treatment. Pain killers ( anti inflammatory drugs ) will only give temporary relief. Calf muscle exercises, aerobic exercises and good foot wear are the only things that help. Cold sponging with ice will help in reducing the pain

Lower back pain is a common cause for visits to the doctor. Causes of lower back pain include muscle pulls and spasms, nerve irritation, and spinal abnormalities such as a slipped disk or spinal stenosis. Treatment options for lower back pain range widely according to the cause of the condition. Rest your back. Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees helps keep your back in a neutral position. You might also find some relief by lying on the floor with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle and propped on a chair. However, don’t rest for too long — many cases of lower back pain resolve themselves within a couple of days. Treat lower back pain with a hot or cold compress, this can reduce pain and increase your mobility. Over-the-counter pain killers are a non-invasive treatment option for back pain. Medications such as ibuprofen is most effective in reducing pain and swelling associated with muscle-related lower back pain. Meet an orthopedic surgeon (bone doctor) if your back does not feel better after a few days of rest, hot or cold compresses, and over-the-counter pain killers. If your back pain doesn’t respond to conventional treatments, you may need to consider alternative options. Traction uses a system of weights to align your spine and possibly help slipped disks move back into place. Ultrasound involves massaging the soft tissues around your back injury with sound waves that warm the muscles, causing them to relax and heal more quickly. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is electronic stimulation of the nerves through electrodes placed on your skin. Ask a orthopedic doctor about these treatment methods. Hope this information helps. Take care.

Huge pain on Right side neck, shoulder blade and complete hand .pls help me on this. It's too much pain.
Dear Lybrate user, Your pain most probably is coming from your cervical (neck) region. Try out hot or cold fomentation whichever one suits you. Avoid sitting for long time in one position and avoid travelling. Try over the counter pain medications. If the pain doesn't resolve then consult a good physiotherapist in your locality. Regards.

Low back pain is very common. If it's restricted to only back no radiation to lower limb ,there is no worries. Consult a physiotherapy specialist and follow the instructions.

Dear lybrate-user, calcium consumption is of no use until and unless your body absorbs and utilises it. For now you need to use natural foodstuffs that is rich in calcium and avoid sofdrinks and take a medicine Rhus tox 6 twice in evening at 2 hrs gap for 5 days and consult back with blood biochemistry reports and vit D3 test.
