Are your joints able to predict a change in weather better than your traditional barometer? If so, read on. We may have a painless solution that will soon have you singing in the rain.

Can Arthritis Be A True Weather Gauge?

It’s true that many people with back pain, neck pain or other chronic joint complaints are often surprisingly accurate in predicting when storms are approaching, and believe it or not; there is some validity to their weather forecasting abilities.

In 2010 by the¬ International Journal of Biometeorology, researchers established a direct connection between low barometric pressure to inflammation and joint pain in rats.¬†Additional research has demonstrated the same phenomenon occurs in humans. For instance, a 2002 study from the¬ Journal of Spinal Disorders and Techniques¬ concluded that “back pain may be aggravated by atmosphere depression in patients with lumbar disc disease.” And a 2007 study from the¬ American Journal of Medicine¬ determined that “changes in barometric pressure are independently associated with osteoarthritis knee pain severity.”

It drives home what chiropractors have been saying for decades: The absence of pain is not the measure of good health! So while there’s validity to the idea of “aches and pains mean coming rains,” anticipation of weather changes should not interfere with you enjoying the quality of life you desire.

But remember, sunny days ahead are no substitution for proper exercise, proper diet and supplementation, and regular chiropractic care.

Break Out Those Sunglasses!

Don’t hide under your umbrella of pain!  Call us today and let us help you get to the underlying inflammation and back to enjoying a sunny disposition of living pain-free no matter the weather!

SwankChiro Testimonials

I suffer from hip pain on long days...

I am a competitive runner and have been plagued with hip pains on long days. I have been to MD's, PT's, Athletic trainers, and even tried acupuncture. All to no avail. My friend recommended Dr. Swank.  I have been very pleased with his approach and most importantly the results. I have increased my PR at several distances and am virtually pain free.  My experience with Dr. Swank has been very good and can recommend him without reservation.
