Extreme weather has basically no effect on rheumatism, however, patients with musculoskeletal complaints often understand atmospheric changes and the approach of a front, said our rheumatologist Dr. Bernadette Rojkovich. According to the specialist, the development of rheumatic diseases can be prevented by proper lifestyle, sports and proper nutrition.
Exercise is key to prevention
There are several types of rheumatism, it is essentially a group of symptoms that means a painful condition and disease of the musculoskeletal system, he said. Dr. Rojkovich Bernadette.
Musculoskeletal disorders are among the most common diseases. The term “rheumatism” is often used, which means nothing more than pain from the musculoskeletal system. There can be many causes of musculoskeletal pain, it can come from the joints, spine, ligaments, mucous tubes. The most common cause of pain is wear and tear. In addition to chronic pain, the characteristic symptom of abrasive joint lesions is that the joints are “rusty” for a few minutes after rest, which dissolves to start and move.
Joint pain is more caused by strain and movement, resting pain is more likely to occur only during the inflammatory period of wear. In addition to joint pain, arthritis is also associated with swelling, warmth, redness, and narrowing of joint movement.
The weather has no significant effect on joint complaints. In practice, however, there are patients who are more sensitive to the cold front and some who are more sensitive to the warm front, he warned. Dr. Rojkovich Bernadette on the relationships between rheumatism and weather.
During frontal pain, pain may be more severe, however, there is no evidence that weather changes would alter the course of arthritis. Patients usually realize for themselves which front they are sensitive to. Experience shows that people are not sensitive to extreme weather, but to the weather change itself.
Although the concept of climate change is widespread in public discourse, it is not known in the literature. The risk of air conditioners is that if they are not cleaned regularly or with sufficient thoroughness, pathogens can multiply in them. Dr. Bernadette Rojkovich pointed out.
The pathogens in question, however they can cause respiratory infections rather than rheumatism.
Air conditioners cause air movement, and this, like atmospheric fronts, can increase rheumatic pain. The impact of air conditioners in this respect is somewhat similar to the arrival of an atmospheric front.
So the heat of summer doesn’t have a really big impact on rheumatism, but it’s known that older people, those with cardiovascular disease, can be very weakened by the high heat. It is extremely important that older people drink a lot of fluids, said a specialist at the Buda Vaccination Center and Private Medical Center.
Older people can weaken much sooner in high heat and are therefore at increased risk of injury. For example, a bad move sprains their ankles, they fall, the trouble is ready – so extreme temperatures can have such consequences.
The cause of musculoskeletal pain is often that we lead an inappropriate lifestyle. Some people sit too much at all, working too much in front of a computer. Children are especially at risk because a high-calorie diet and a sedentary lifestyle promote obesity and prevent the development of adequate bone mineral content, especially the consumption of many soft drinks and cola.
Rheumatism can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle, poor nutrition, low calcium intake, and low milk intake. It all affects the condition of our musculoskeletal system, our immune system, and actually rheumatism.
Exercise is important because when our muscles weaken, postural disorders occur around the spine, for example, and our joints become more vulnerable because there is no muscle ring around the joints that supports the joint and the spine. So lifestyle greatly affects how our joints, our spine, can be more vulnerable, more painful, ”warned Dr. Bernadette Rojkovich.
