Weather is giving you back pain or causes your arthritis to flare up?

One frequently hears people complain that inclement weather is giving them back pain or causes their arthritis to flare up. It’s an idea that dates back to ancient Roman times, but new research conducted in Australia shows that there is no scientific evidence to actually link these phenomena. Researchers compared weather conditions with the time hundreds of volunteers suffering from knee osteoarthritis and lower back pain noticed the onset of pain. The results suggest no connection between humidity, air pressure, temperature, humidity, rain or wind direction and soreness.
