Can the weather outside make pain worse?
Can weather cause the pain to get worse?
Vero Beach, Fl.- When the weather is dreary outside, it seems to make most people feel bad. When weather fronts pass through an area, the barometric pressure tends to drop. If you are fortunate enough to live in an area that can receive hurricanes, the barometric pressure really drops. What is barometric pressure? It’s the measure of the weight pressing down on us from the air above. Rainy weather tends to lower the barometric pressure, so we essentially have less weight pressing down on us. This can let all those inflammatory enzymes leach out into our body that are normally contained. This can make you feel worse. This can be an answer as to why arthritis flairs up when the weather is worse outside. Dr. Thomas Harmody is a chiropractor at Vero Walk-In Chiropractic and Wellness in Vero Beach, Fl.
