Ice - a threat to the joints!

The first frosts bring many problems to Krasnoyarsk people, especially pedestrians suffer from frost. In icy conditions, any incorrect movement may end in injury. A bad fall and related fractures, dislocations, sprains can lead to serious problems with the joints. The knee and hip joints are often affected. If the person is elderly, injuries are even more dangerous, since the natural restoration of the cartilage tissue of the joints is very slow. In addition, due to the cold weather, short daylight hours, the level of our physical activity decreases markedly, as if we fall into a winter “hibernation”.

With such a sedentary lifestyle, the muscles supporting the joint and relieving part of the load weaken. Because of this, even ordinary daily duties (cleaning the apartment or shopping) can lead to microtraumas of the articular cartilage. Therefore, at the first alarming symptoms, you need to contact specialists. Also try to avoid hypothermia and colds, dress for the weather and strengthen the immune system.
