More activity during air conditioning can prevent arthritis
After entering the summer, the office air conditioner was opened fiercely. Ms. Li sat in it for a long time, and she felt cold. Recently, she developed symptoms of soreness in her knees and tiny swelling in her left knee.
Going to the hospital to check the accused as “acute knee synovitis”, the cause of his illness was actually long-term air conditioning.
銆€銆€In the past, arthritis mostly recurred or aggravated in the autumn and winter seasons, but it is also the case in summer. This is related to the patient’s eagerness to air conditioning and carelessness, which is called the “air conditioning leg.”
“Air conditioning legs” means that after indoor air conditioning is turned on, the indoor ground temperature is the lowest, and the legs of the person are in the ground low temperature for a long time. The exposed knees are easily stimulated by the cold, and the legs are sore and the knee pain is severe.The swelling is unbearable and is common among middle-aged women.
銆€銆€Many people do not have any harm caused by long-term air conditioning. I think the most serious thing is that you have a cold, dizziness and headache, especially young people don’t care.
As everyone knows, the cold air damage to the joints is very big, if you do not pay attention to keep warm, it is easy to suffer from arthritis when you are old.
銆€銆€In order to prevent the occurrence of “air conditioning legs”, we should try not to expect long in the air-conditioned room.
If you need to leave if you need to work, it is best to wear trousers or stockings to protect your knees from cold.
You can also protect your legs with a towel.
At the same time, avoid the air conditioning cool wind blowing directly to the legs, and pay attention to the air conditioning temperature is not too low, about 27 掳C is appropriate.
When you feel cool inside, be sure to stand up and move your limbs and torso to speed up your blood circulation.
