Winter Weather, Fargo, and Aches and Pains

Winter has arrived in Fargo, ND and with it comes aches and pains for many of our patients. Why do some people experience more discomfort in cold weather?

Differences in barometric pressure might be one cause. Pain patients are also fairly sensitive to any kind of painful stimulus, like cold, and that might also be why some folks experience more discomfort in the winter season.

Although we are unable to influence the seasons, we can do some things to relieve the discomfort from the winter months:

  • Get some exercise. Nothing warms up your body like physical activities, plus it helps boost your mood and keeps you fit!

  • Stay hydrated. When it's cold out and the humidity is low, it's easy to get dehydrated. Drink lots of water during the winter months.

  • Heat therapy. A heating pad can really do a lot to lessen aches and pains.

  • See your chiropractor! We're trained to help people with musculoskeletal pain and conditions, and we can help not only relieve the aches and pains of wintertime, but, most importantly, help resolve the underlying problem causing the pain in the first place.


Chiropractic care is safe and effective for so many conditions. If you'd like to get out of pain without drugs and/or surgery, give our Fargo, ND clinic a call today at (701) 893-7878 for an appointment.
