Relief for Chronic Pain Doesn't Need to Wait Until Spring
Freezing temperatures, slips and falls on icy ground and shoveling snow can trigger pain during the winter. While it might be tempting to wait until spring before seeing your physician, ignoring or under-treating your pain comes at a high price because it can lead to more pain.
Lisa A. DeStefano, DO, an AOA board-certified family physician, is available to discuss pain in the winter, including:
How cold weather pain may worsen pain from pre-existing conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and general muscle aches.
Tips for preventing pain year-round.
Why managing pain is not a “one size fits all” diagnosis and people should speak with their physician to develop a comprehensive treatment plan to find relief and get their lives back.
