Spine Care For Winter

Banner_76_1024

Do you feel your body aching and paining a lot more during winter? Well, due to the chilly weather, the icy cold winds and the dropping temperature, it is bound to happen to most of us. This freezing weather creates an inevitable turbulence in your body, making your body prone to injuries and aches.

Here are some of the precautionary measures you must follow to avoid back pain during winters:

Keep Moving

Due to extremely cold climatic conditions, you tend to shiver which brings about a little motion to provide heat and warmth to your body. The ill-effect is that it can stress your muscles to such an extent that they may ache, thereby making them more vulnerable to injuries later on. If you want to avoid the aches, keep yourself in motion so that your joints are lubricated. Always wear a muffler or a scarf with your dress because they help in avoiding the neck pain caused due to the chilly weather.

Wear Comfortable Non-Slippery Footwear

If on a vacation to the mountains, you are bound to slip while walking on ice and it is quite difficult to maintain your balance. Due to this, you may slip and fracture your bone or face muscular sprains. Therefore, you should always wear comfortable non-slippery shoes and shuffle your steps while walking to avoid slipping.

Do stretching exercises before hard labour

People living in snowy areas may be familiar with snow shovelling as they need to do it very often. Always do stretching exercises before snow shovelling or any other form of hard labour because it can cause chest and back pain if not done properly. Always use your legs and arms in coordination with each other. For any type of hard physical labour, remember to work in phases to avoid the ache and pain which may be caused due to rapid or sudden exertion of strength.

Keep yourself hydrated

You don’t feel thirsty during winters too often but you need to drink optimum amount of water regularly during the winters to keep yourself fit. You often rely on tea and coffee to keep yourself warm which causes excretion of water from your body at a higher rate and this can result in dehydration. Therefore, you should drink plenty of water during winter.

Take Vitamin D 

Due to shorter days during winters, your exposure to sun reduces, which may cause lack of Vitamin D in your body. If your body doesn’t get sufficient Vitamin D, you are at risk of having bone abnormalities. Therefore you should take Vitamin D supplements on a regular basis to fulfill your body’s requirements.

These simple tips can not only help you take care of your spine but will also assure reduced body aches and pains. Take care!
