Arthritis is a pain, literally. Unfortunately there’s not really a way to avoid the effects of arthritis from happening. A question that is commonly asked is whether or not temperature and climate can affect your arthritis. The answer is yes. The change that you feel in your arthritis is actually derived from pressure rather than temperature, isn’t that surprising?

When temperatures change the pressure in the atmosphere changes, and our joints and muscles surrounding the joints can tell. As temperatures drop, you might notice your joints tightening as a reaction to what we’ve always assumed was the cold. When your muscles get tight, they begin to become sore from being so tight, which leads to arthritis pain.

One of the ways that professionals suggest avoiding this is by wearing a compression brace on our joints. They make these braces for a variety of body parts, so you’re sure to find one that suits your arthritis needs. When you wear a compression brace, the part of your body that is hurting from the arthritis is held tightly in place so that the pressure doesn’t affect the tightness that you feel in your muscles.
