Hot to Cold Shock


Air conditioning is a wonderful and modern convenience we find everywhere from our homes to commercial properties. Generally, we can mostly avoid hot summer temperatures altogether on some days. If you are running errands, attending a baseball game, at the pool, or enjoying a family picnic or reunion, you may have to weather hot temps. As you transition from hot to cold this can be stressful for your body.

There are a number of reasons for this:

  • Transitioning from hot into cold temperatures can make the muscles in the temples very stiff and achy and can also cause an increase in jaw clenching, and neck tightening.
  • Breathing in cold air through the nose and mouth can be irritating to the sinuses and throat and lead to headaches, especially if you are spending significant amounts of time outdoors and then transition indoors.

The good news is that there are methods and treatments for all of these situations and the issues that may arise from them. Give us a call today and let us help you get through these chilling seasonal woes!
