Winter Joint Pain Got You Down? Call Trinity Orthopedics!
If you’ve lived in Texas for any length of time, you know that winters can be unpredictable. The morning before a “Blue Norther’” comes in, you may be wearing shirtsleeves, but by that afternoon, once the front passes, you need a heavy coat. These swings in temperature can wreak havoc on your joints, especially if you have chronic joint pain or a previous injury. If winter weather joint pain becomes too much to go about your daily life, you should give us a call at Trinity Orthopedics.
A Real Pain in the Neck
Cold weather and changes in barometric pressure from passing cold fronts can make your joints ache. Occasionally, this pain can be an indication of a more serious problem. You don’t have to live with pain. A consultation with a Hurst orthopedics specialist, like our doctors here at Trinity, can help you get on the road to a pain-free life.
There are many options for treating joint pain, depending on the cause. Occasionally surgery may be needed to replace a joint that has been severely worn by arthritis, but this does not have to be the case. Some people fear orthopedic surgery and avoid seeking treatment for their joint pain because of this fear. Surgery is typically used as a last resort, and there are many minimally invasive procedures that can be done to reduce pain and recovery time.
The only way to know for certain the best treatment for your joint pain is to talk to one of our orthopedic specialists about your pain and explore your options.
