Do you know when it is going to rain because your joints hurt? Do your joints ache in cold weather? If so, you are not alone.
Joint pain from either cold or rainy weather is usually due to scar tissue build up or arthritis in your joints. Research shows that scar tissue is sensitive to changes in barometric pressure that accompany rainy, cold weather. Consequently, most experts feel as though scar tissue is at the source of this pain.
The question is, how do you get scar tissue in your joints? Once one of our joints has been injured by a motor vehicle accident, a fall, work injury, etc., joint degeneration begins. The initial injury causes irritation of the joint. The irritation leads to inflammation of the joint which later cause scar tissue formation. Scar tissue limits joint motion and can be a primary source of pain. This is why joint problems are commonly associated with both pain and stiffness.
Chiropractic treatment reduces joint pain by stretching out and breaking down scar tissue within the joint that is limiting movement and causing pain.
Chiropractic adjustments breakdown the scar tissue that is responsible for neck pain, back pain, knee pain, etc, allowing larger, pain free ranges of motion. Once normal bio-mechanics are restored to the joints and they are moving like they are supposed to with minimal restrictions, they will last longer and be less likely to cause pain.
