  • Minimize Time Outside

    The easiest way to prevent pain from worsening during hot, humid weather is to limit your time outdoors during the peak of the afternoon heat. Try to plan your outdoor chores, activities and recreation during the early morning or early evening hours when temperatures and humidity are likely lower compared to mid-day.

  • Eat and Drink Adequately

    If you are well hydrated during your busy summer activities, you will likely feel more energized and your muscles will perform at their best.

    Make sure when you hydrate, you are drinking water and not sugary substitute drinks or soda.

  • Wear the Right Clothing

    Dressing for the weather will enhance your comfort and help you keep a regulated body temperature, even as the temperature rises outside.

    The best clothing options to wear during hot summer days are light colors and loose fabrics. Always consider bringing layers to add or remove as needed.

  • Pace Yourself

    No matter how much you love an activity, be mindful of the hot weather before you get started. If you struggle with pain the best idea is to start slow and in short increments of time. Start with 5-10 minutes of your favorite outdoor activity and work your way up from there. Keep a log of the time you spend doing activities to track your progress and see how you’ve improved over time.

  • Choose Activities Wisely

    Swimming and exercising in the water can be less painful than traditional aerobic exercise and offers an enjoyable way to beat the heat this summer! Water has properties that reduce the force of gravity on your body and this takes the pressure off your back and other joints. This can make exercise deceptively easy while you are in the water, so be sure not to overdo it.
