Why You May Experience More Joint Pain During The Winter

Dec 18, 2017

Arthritis is one of the most common causes of disability, affecting over 40 million people throughout the United States. On top of this, close to 25 million children have arthritis, while over 20 million people have osteoarthritis. During the cold winter season, temperature, air pressure, and a general lack of exercise can cause patients to experience increased levels of joint pain and stiffness. Although it may be uncomfortable to perform physical activity in frigid or icy weather conditions, exercise is an excellent solution for minimizing the symptoms associated with arthritis.

Reduce Arthritis and Joint Pain

If you have arthritis and are interested in enjoying the winter holidays pain-free, contact our Orthopedic Doctors to learn more about particular low-impact exercises you can perform indoors. AICA Orthopedics is Atlanta’s leading accident injury and chronic pain relief center that is dedicated to helping patients overcome their symptoms as safely as possible. Consider the following information that details the extent of arthritis and how we can help you avoid joint pain this winter.

 Available Treatment Options For Arthritis

For those who experience daily pain caused by hip arthritis and are unable to follow through with essential activities because of limited mobility, you may want to speak with one of our Orthopedic Doctors about which treatment options are appropriate for your condition. The doctors at AICA Orthopedics perform anterior and posterior hip replacement procedures on a regular basis and understand how to provide treatment without compromising other areas of your lifestyle or health.

Anterior Procedures

For anterior procedures, our Orthopedic Doctors rely on a muscle interval that is located in the front of the hip joint and travels around the muscles located in this area, opposed to tearing through them to reach the affected joint. With this approach, we can minimize tissue damage and help patients recover at a much faster pace while also experiencing less pain.

Hip Replacement Procedures

Ongoing advancements in technology and replacement procedures allow our patients to experience significant improvements in their health, as well as their overall lifestyle. And, unlike other Orthopedic centers, our clinic contains state-of-the-art imaging devices onsite and a multidisciplinary team of medical experts to provide comprehensive, complete care.
