Fall is a beautiful time to be outside. The crisp weather. The brightly colored leaves. The seasonal allergies. Many of us suffer from some form of seasonal allergy. For many of us, it is a stuffy nose, itchy or watery eyes. Nothing more than an irritant we gladly trade off for such wondrous outdoor beauty. But allergies can have more of an impact on your body than you might realize.
But, according to the Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania (OIP), some people who suffer from seasonal allergies may also experience severe joint, muscle, back and neck ache.
Turns out, when you experience allergies, your body has higher inflammation levels than usual as your immune system reacts to pollen and your body attempts to “flush” out the allergens, according to the OIP. This can cause aches, pains and inflammation across a variety of areas in your body, including neck, shoulders, lumbar, even knees, ankles, feet and hands!
As fall weather turns to winter, often the air becomes drier. Humidity falls and when that happens and we are exerting ourselves, we increase our risk of dehydration. As we dehydrate, our muscles and surrounding tissues can swell. Muscles and tendons when dehydrated and cold are also prone to increased risk of damage.
Topicals such as Daily Balance prior to an outdoor workout or activity can increase blood flow and oxygenation to tissues and help to ward off inflammation. Application after a cool weather activity can help to extend improved blood flow and delivery of key nutrients and minerals to keep inflammation tamped down and speed recovery.
Keep in mind, inflammation is not the same thing as swelling always. Inflammation can cause aches, pains and minor mobility issues whereas swelling is helping to protect seriously damaged parts of your body. Using a topical to treat regular inflammation can help you feel better and perform better.
