It's Cold Outside! How to Protect Your Bones and Joints During Winter

Most of the daily activities we do whether that's walking, running, sitting, dancing, climbing and descending stairs require our bones and joints to remain healthy and strong. Maintaining the health of our bones and joints is crucial during the colder seasons, especially if you suffer from conditions like arthritis.
For people living with arthritis, the winter months can often be the most challenging time of the year because they are more prone to experience discomfort due to limited blood flow to bones and joints. Low activity levels may increase the risk of inflammation, while lower vitamin D levels due to low natural sunlight and low atmospheric pressure may worsen the pain and stiffness of the joints.
However, there is much that can be done to keep your bones and joints in optimal condition during the winter months.
In this article, we will share a few simple and effective tips to help you prevent joint pain and keep your bones and joints healthy during the cold season.

Focus on eating healthy

Add foods rich in vitamins A, D, E, K and minerals such as calcium, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus to your daily diet that are vital for bone and joint health. Most of these micronutrients come from milk and other dairy products, eggs, spinach, broccoli, carrots, legumes, and citrus fruits.

Don't forget your water! Stay hydrated during your day, as dehydration can cause fatigue and muscle pain, but what is more important, it serves as a lubricant in our joints, that helps to reduce joint friction and prevent your bones from rubbing against each other.

Stay active

Finding the motivation to get out of our cosy beds and go for a walk or run in the morning is hard. Give more preference to yoga, stretching exercises or just any workout with lightweights at home. A regular and consistent exercise schedule will help keep you energized throughout the day and keep joints flexible and strengthen bones.

Keep warm

It is important to keep your body warm during winter, as this will help prevent regular joint and muscle pain and reduce inflammation. Apply heat in the form of hot water bags, electric heating or warm baths to relieve joint aches and relax muscles.
