Is There an Association Between Rainfall and Joint Pain Diagnosis?

The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between rainfall and outpatient visits for joint or back pain.

The proportion of visits for joint or back-pain related conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, spondylosis, and intervertebral disc disorders) were compared between rainy and non-rainy days.

Results indicated that there was no relationship between rainfall and outpatient visits for joint or back pain.
