New Smartphone Study May Help Predict Arthritis Pain Using Weather

How about predicting the symptoms of pain using the weather? A new study will be carried out to identify whether there is a link between weather and chronic pain.

The study will be conducted by Dr Will Dixon, director of the University of Manchester's Arthritis Research UK Centre for Epidemiology. The study titled as "Cloudy with a Chance of Pain," is supported by Arthritis Research UK.

People with arthritis or chronic pain aged over 17 can take part using their smart phone. They have to describe the causes of their pain.

"People taking part in this study will be helping to answer a question that even the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, couldn't resolve. We are able to do that thanks to the mobile phones," said Dr Dixon.

Dixon believes that the study can help people suffering from arthritis in the UK."We're keen to get as many people as we can. Every person counts. In the future, knowing the link between weather and pain could also help with treatment options," said Dr Dixon.
