Itís Cold Outside!
Yes, once again frigid weather has embraced the country. Thatís not a problem if you are a normal, healthy individual. But, if you have arthritis, it can be a very painful time of the year. Changes in atmospheric pressure can cause changes in pressure in the joints. This pressure change in the arthritic joint can be very painful. There are two things that can be done to help minimize this discomfort, exercise the effected joints and keep them warm. Sleeves and braces, particularly those made with neoprene, can be of assistance in providing both added mobility and warmth.
