It’s that time of year again when the cold weather makes the body ache, and those achy joints become a little more painful. What most people are not aware of is how the body adapts to cold weather and how a person can prepare their body to endure this type of weather change with regular chiropractic adjustments. When the spine is in alignment, the nerves are free to communicate easily with the rest of the body. Proper alignment in the body also allows for blood flow to help the body heal naturally from acute or chronic pain, which can seem to worsen during those winter months.
As rain and snow become a part of many people’s lives, we must all be aware of the hazards that come along with the changed weather. Slips and falls are one of the leading cause of emergency room visits in America, according to the National Floor Safety Institute. In fact, a chiropractor focuses on conditions related to the spinal column, and in the event of a slip and fall, a chiropractor can help you recover through a series of adjustments that can promote blood flow.

With the change of weather, the roads also become a little more dangerous, and auto accidents are more prevalent than usual. In places where it doesn’t rain so often like California or Arizona, the first rain can cause the roadways to be extremely slippery. In an auto accident, whiplash is the number one injury that causes people the most chronic pain for weeks and months after an auto accident. Fortunately, chiropractors understand how the muscles and other tissues in the cervical spine can be affected from whiplash.
