Have you ever experienced feeling pain during cold weather? You had probably been symptom free for a period of time but the day a cold breeze starts up, you’re now feeling pain and stiffness. While it’s not an unknown fact, it’s a fragment of essential information that many people tend to overlook. If you’ve been shivering from the freezing cold weather in the last 24-hours and both your neck and back began to feel sore, its time to take note of your posture. When feeling cold, did you hunch over trying to warm yourself up from the weather? Did you notice your neck being pushed forward while you held your shoulders to the level of your ears? Next time, pay close attention to your posture when you are sitting at your desk in the cold office or walking through the cold weather as you make your way to your car in the parking lot.
Many people experience symptoms of pain and stiffness during the cold weather. While many have always associated weather changes to body aches, studies have shown that posture and the atmospheric pressure could influence these reactions on the body.
