Climate, Weather & Arthritis
Question: Does climate impact arthritis pain?
Answer: Weather conditions can contribute to arthritis pain, according to Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D. in Arthritis Answers From the Experts.
It is well-known that cold weather can worsen osteoarthritis symptoms. Thus, many arthritis patients find relief in the dry, hot climate of the southwest. Other patients seek out warm yet humid climates, such as that of south Florida. Reactions to a more humid climate have varied; however, some patients are helped and some are not.
