According to a new study by the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, people suffering from arthritis face worst symptoms during the winter. Due to the cold temperatures, people with arthritis (and especially the elderly) tend to stay indoors and inactive for longer periods of time, which is what makes arthritis symptoms increase.
The people that stay indoors and do not participate in activity not only increase their symptoms, but also risk maintaining poor health and even decreasing their overall health, because they are not receiving the recommended amount of daily physical activity.
A research professor at the Northwestern, Joe Feinglass, stated, “We found that there’s a huge difference in trying to get these patients to be active in the winter and trying to get them to be active in the summer. Even modest reductions in activity can have serious health consequences for people with arthritis.”
