The cold often makes joints and muscles stiff, this can make it difficult to stretch them. The reason for this is that the muscles begin to tighten – reducing heat dissipation, in an attempt to keep the body warm, and therefore becoming inflexible as well as making the body more prone to injury. Pain can present and highten due to stiffness.
During the cooler seasons, many people find that they are more likely to experience health issues and pain which can prove tough to overcome during their everyday life.
People with existing joint issues can become affected by temperature changes, such as those that are affected by osteoarthritis.
