I love that the wonderful home of my office, Greater Rochester Chiropractic, wrote the article, “Taking Care in Winter Weather”! First, they told us that we should replace walking or running shoes that have lost their tread, and that they should still be comfortable with thicker socks. Next, they talked of our proprioceptive system, which tells us of our location in three dimensions. This system works because of specialized nerve endings. We can do little, simple things like bending our knees when we expect to encounter a slippery area. As long as we keep the input to our system going (of course, our nerves thrive on stimulation!), we can eliminate slips and falls or reduce the injury if they do happen! So, there is no need not to walk or run during the winter months.
