Seasonal Affective Disorder is a kind of depression that typically come with the changing of the seasons, particularly summer to fall and fall to winter. As the days start getting shorter and the weather cools off people often start to see symptoms of lethargy, moodiness, fatigue and weight gain. Colder temperatures can also contribute to increased muscle aches. Exercise and stretching has been shown to benefit patients with mild to moderate mood disorders, especially anxiety and depression. Our therapists at JTOPS can help with pain management, developing a home exercise program and providing education regarding energy conservation and work modification techniques to keep you happy and healthy all year long.
