Does Constant Hot Weather Improve Arthritis?

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hi All,

 

Sitting here in London,UK at the moment, on my lunch break at work (Telecoms Engineer) and me knees are giving me grief again, damp and horrible outside. Got Arthritis in both knees but my right knee is real bad some days, been told the usual that I need knee replacements but to wait until I am older (aint exactly a spring chicken now, 55 years old, Lol).

So, if there are any older gentlemen amongst you fit bunch of sun worshippers I would value your input. When you went to the Phils did you have any arthritic type of pain and if so, how is it now?

Does the constant heat/sun make any difference or is that just wishful thinking?

Thanks in advance for your replies. (If I get any of course, Lol).

I have arthritis in my hands, mostly the thumb joints.  It was always worst in the winter weather in the states.  The pain has virtually disappeared since moving here two years ago.  I would say yes, makes a big difference.

There is no argument, most aches and pains for me almost disappear here. As stated in another post its one of the main reasons I have for being here.

 

My brother has chronic arthritis, during his visit here each year he is like a spring chicken, maybe the humidity also helps.

I used to go to a chiropractor every 3 months in the UK. I have arthritis in my spine in the middle of my shoulders at the base of my neck,in my hip and my knees.Back in the Uk I always suffered with white finger in the winter I also suffered from lower back pain. The only thing I get now is a little twinge in my hip once in a while. The rest has been no problem and I have not been to a chiropractor in 4 years.  So I have come to 2 conclusions (1) the heat helps or (2) my wallet is lighter now as I don`t have as much money as when I was working.

 

So eddie you will have to read the answers here and make up your mind good luck come on you hammers

Hey guys,

 

Warm and humid climate keeps your joints well lubricated.  But I'm surprise none of you didn't mention the real secret to a youthful lifestyle.  I give you a hint -- it's warm all right........he, he.

Hi Guys,

 

Thanks for your numerous replies, a few varied answers with one common overriding factor, YES, the heat and sun in good for arthritis and aches and pains of the joints. 

I asked the specialist at the hospital the same question that I posted here and his reply was typically non-committal,   'There isn't no medical evidence to support that fact' etc etc.. Maybe he would learn a few things by reading this forum, Lol.  :bash:  

Sonjack,  You're a Westham supporter?     Might have to start another post about footie, Lol.
