A Physiotherapy Guide to your Body in the Winter
The winter impacts our bodies in more ways than we can imagine. The cold and slippery conditions bring an increased chance of injuries and accidents. With more cold weather on the way across the Greater Vancouver region, it is beneficial to be proactive and protect your body from the cold weather.
Our staff at Total Care Health can help remedy any aches and pains experienced during the winter. We provide a wide range of services that are effective for cold-weather ailments.
The cold weather of the winter can slow down blood circulation and cause muscle stiffness in many people. As muscles tighten up, it results in a buildup of lactic acid. When this happens, muscles become sore and stiff.
A physiotherapy appointment can help improve blood flow, increase mobility, and lessen pain.
Message therapy is helpful for those dealing with cold weather-induced muscle pain. A massage helps to promote blood flow and help relieve pain in the affected muscle. Our therapist will gently massage and stretch the affected area.
During the winter months, many people are prone to sitting inside for long periods. Prolonged periods of sitting result in an increased risk of back, shoulder, and hip injuries. When pain in these regions occurs, visiting a chiropractor for spinal manipulation can help to reduce the pain.
