Arthritis and Weather: What Causes Knee Joint Pain in Winter?
Knee Pain in Winters! Does Arthritis Pain Intensify with Changing Weather?
Ever wondered why joint pain in winter is aggravated? The correlation between arthritis and weather has been a long-standing debate between arthritis sufferers and science. The patient believes there is a clear connection between the two and claims that their knee pain in winters and osteoarthritis symptoms worsen during winter and rainy seasons.
However, compelling evidence in the past studies shows that the effects of weather-related factors such as rain, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity and precipitation on arthritis pain are inconclusive or contradictory.
For example, the 222 patients with hip osteoarthritis symptoms that participated in a Dutch study over a two year period found that their overall average impact on stiffness and pain with rising barometric pressure and humidity was insignificant.
Moreover, researchers also placed arthritis sufferers in an artificially created environmental scenario with varying weather and barometric conditions. But they were unable to figure out why and what the weather affects osteoarthritis symptoms, further increasing their scepticism about the connection.
While nothing can be done about the weather, much can be done about managing your arthritis and knee joint pain in winters by using natural solutions with no side effects. One such solution is Flexiqule, a natural solution which contains the Phytoactives (most powerful ingredients in medicinal plants) of Ginger and Boswellia. It has been clinically tested to provide joint support and also helps in osteoarthritis knee symptoms such as reducing joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness, no matter what the weather is.
