Do You Want To Beat Arthritis Pain? Don’t Let TheOutdoor Activities in theFall SlowYouDown

Its that time of year when you get outside and the weather changes slightly. Don’t let that sunshine fool you the cooler fall air may cause trouble for your arthritis pain. Why do your joints ache in cool weather? Your joints are filled with fluid and so are your muscles, ligaments and tendons. When the air temperature is cooler, tissues tend to become tighter, drier and stiffer. This is especially true for extremities more exposed to the elements and away from the core of the body. Hands, shoulders, knees, hips and ankles are most susceptible. Arthritis pain is directly correlated to the limitation of mobility in your joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. The more freedom of movement in your joints, strength in your muscles and improved circulation, the less you are

affected by arthritis inflammation and pain. How to Naturally Relieve Arthritis Pain The best way to relieve arthritis pain is to stop inflammation from happening in the first place. Focus your efforts on protecting your joints with proper posture, gripping and lifting techniques. Don’t do an activity all at once, for example spring cleaning without taking breaks. Diet can play a major role in how you feel with arthritis. What you eat makes a big difference in how much inflammation is produced in your body. In addition, regular aerobic and strengthening exercises help you feel your best by keeping your joints lubricated, stretched and strengthened.
