Why You Should See Your Chiropractor Before Winter Begins

The temperature is quickly dropping, and chilly weather can mean a variety of things to many of us.  For many, the excitement of winter activities like ice skating and tobogganing begin. For others there are winter fairs and markets. For some it’s preparing for the holidays and spending time indoors with loved ones and warm blankets. Whatever your reason is for loving winter, there is also a reason to ensure you continue to have regular visits with your chiropractor. 

Here are a few reasons you should not skip Dr Brandon Herrington in the winter: 

Cold Weather Can Lead to Joint Pain

Stiffness, achy joints, and soreness increase in the cold weather. The combination of stiff muscles due to extreme temperatures, changes in barometric pressure and flu season can cause your joints to become inflamed and more painful than usual. The fluid that helps our joints remain lubricated can be affected by cold temperatures, which is why Dr Herrington can become the most valuable player in your healthcare team over the winter months. The work Dr Herrington will do will help loosen up the fluid in your joints so it can flow more freely. Not only that, but reminders about how to safely keep yourself warm, along with natural ways to keep your immune system functioning optimally will all create a system for your body that will allow you to enjoy the winter months pain free. 

Cold Weather Leads to Inactivity

Hibernating is for the bears, not people. It does us a disservice to be ultra active in the warm months, only to undo our fitness all winter. It can be harder to muster up the motivation to get out and exercise. Putting on weight can add extra stress to your joints, and can lead to difficulties in repairing injuries that can happen when the snow and ice take over. Regular adjustments can help you to remain limber, and Dr Herrington can help you remain on top of your physical fitness. Whether it’s accountability or coming up with new ways to move your body indoors, visiting your chiropractor in preparation for the winter months will always benefit your overall health.
