Please Help My Muscles Through The Winter Months

At the time of writing its early Sunday evening and I have just come home from the mall.  I am going to complain for a second here, but of you that don’t live near me should know that we have finally now received what I would call a normal winter from Mother Nature.

Okay so in the few hours I was in the mall I swear it poured buckets of snow down although pretty and very mild I feel like this perhaps could be the beginning of a harsh winter, maybe not weather wise but at least for my muscles.

This leads me to wonder how you prevent the stiffness and the tightness brought on by winter and from the dampness of snow. Is there anything you do to make it a little easier on yourself aside from not going out at all?

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Once in a while, to get a massage really helps. Also like you I try to minimize going out unfortunately! :)

    OK well that was just the obvious one lol. I wrote that to you and then thought that was sort of a stupidly obvious thing to say. Here is something cool and less obvious: My sister (Amy) got me a cream for Christmas called Traumeel. It is a homeopathic muscle relaxant. I have the cream form but if it is too hard for you to rub stuff on your back (as it would be for me if I did not have access to help), you can take it in oral form. It works very well to relieve muscle spasms, and yesterday I gave some to my aunt for her carpal tunnel injury and we checked the ingredients– it is all natural (we think) plant matter, but the names are in Latin so it is hard to say what is in it. I was a bit sceptical at first but have to say the stuff really works! Another suggestion, though this one depends where the pain is. Mine tends to be in the back, mainly the upper back and shoulders. It was suggested to me by a physiotherapist to sleep on my stomach instead of my back. Traumeel is great though, don’t know why I didn’t think of that first.

    Today I had to take a couple of pills (ibuprofen). That happens about once a week but usually if I use this cream I don’t have to.

  4. thanks for this amanda means a lot how are you?

    Laura,
    Like you, the damp cold of winter affects my mobility to the point where there are times when I’m afraid to leave my home. I have found something that lessens this although it doesn’t take it completely away. You’re going to be surprised. It’s Aspiricream. Believe it or not, it does minimize stiffness and pain. It’s easy to carry with you so you can always reapply it and you can’t OD on it.

  6. Never heard of it I use rescue remedy and it seems to work well for me
