You don’t need to know the complete science behind why humidity triggers joint pain, for those that have these issues just know how painful it can be, and wish it would stop. Some people take medication to help with joint pain and it still can be, not enough to relieve all the discomfort. Well you can’t stop the rain, but you can try to comfort your joints.
When the joints start to twinge, try a hot shower; letting hot water hit the muscles and joints can relax the area. The water from the shower is introducing a instant precipitation to your body instead of the pressure of humidity building in the air around you. This can bring much relief.
If you are still experiencing the pain, or unable to shower, try a heated compress on the joint. And for extra support and warmth around the joint, try a bandage wrap around the area for the day. Keep a bandage wrap in the car or at work in case it happens unexpectedly. Keeping the joint and muscles warm, can help in keeping the area relaxed.
