More Clinical Studies Are Focusing On The Effects Of Weather On Arthritic Joint Pain

Portland, OR - February 6, 2015 - According to statistics, there are over 46 million individuals in the United States who are suffering from arthritis. This condition can be a heavy physical and mental burden to sufferers, but scientists are now interested in how the weather can affect pain levels.

More clinical studies are focusing on the effects of weather on arthritic joint pain. There have been many arthritis sufferers who believed that they could predict the weather according to the level of joint pain they were suffering from. While this can be quite theoretical, it also attracts many researchers and scientists to investigate how exactly the weather can affect joint pain.

“The belief that joint pain level is indicative of the weather is very popular. Arthritis sufferers have long claimed that their pain would flare up during certain weather events. Now, it seems that there is a scientific basis to this theory,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

The Turfs University conducted a study that revealed a drop of 10 degrees in temperature can significantly increase arthritis pain. It was also found that very low barometric pressure and precipitation can also increase arthritis pain. While researchers are not absolutely sure why this happens exactly, they suspect that the swelling in the joint capsule is increased by certain atmospheric conditions.

Many healthcare professionals who specialize in the treatment of arthritis patients also believe that certain weather conditions can worsen the joint symptoms experienced by sufferers. Albeit patients talk about the weather and arthritis all the time, many doctors also believe in the impact of weather on joint pain.

Dutch researchers conducted a small two-year study that focused on the effects of weather on the pain levels experienced by individuals with arthritis on a daily basis. It was found that the aches suffered by the subjects worsened when the barometric pressure and humidity increased.

The Erasmus MC University Medical Center in Rotterdam conducted a study that found more than 60% of osteoarthritis patients believed that weather conditions, such as the barometric pressure changes, rain and temperature changes had an undesirable impact on pain and stiffness.

More studies are still being conducted to investigate whether or not the weather can indeed affect joint pain levels among arthritis patients. This pain can significantly encourage inactivity and cause physical limitations to sufferers.

Many sufferers believe that natural supplements, such as those containing glucosamine, can help them to better manage their symptoms during times of extreme weather changes. The natural alternative is thought to be safer for long-term use than pharmaceutical drugs (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
