Top 4 Ways to Relieve Joint Pain and Stiffness During Menopause

Just as a reduction in estrogens levels can lead to vaginal dryness, osteoporosis and dizziness, it can also contribute to joint pain and stiffness.  Joint pain, muscle stiffness, and body aches are common symptoms among menopausal women.  Despite where a woman may experience her aches in pain – neck, back, hip, knee, etc. – one thing is for certain, she is looking for relief so she can enjoy her life to the fullest.

Before we take a look at different ways to relieve joint pain, first let’s explore a few causes of joint pain. 

Menopause – the fluctuation of estrogen levels and the extreme hormonal change, particularly during permineopause, have an impact on the way joints feel. 

Overweight – Excess weight places strain on the joints, especially in the knee, ankle and foot.

Digestive problems – women with a history of digestive problems also suffer from sever or chronic joint paint and stiffness. 

There are many non-drug treatment options you can try to help alleviate and prevent joint pain and stiffness during menopause.  The following are four treatments you can try:

1. Exercise Treatment –Many exercises can improve the health and vitality of your joints by strengthening the muscles that surround them.  Exercise helps maintain the strength of your bones, increases circulation, and helps control your weight.  Not exercising on a regular basis actually weakens your muscles and bones and increases your chance of developing joint stiffness, pain and broken bones.

Good exercises to help relieve and prevent joint pain include:
• Strength exercise – weight training (15-20 minutes every second day)
• Aerobic exercise –brisk walk, bike riding, and swimming are all great exercises (20-30 minutes daily or every other day) Note: avoid jogging as it places stress on the knees.
• Range-of-Motion exercise – moving your joints through their full motion range.  For instance, raising your arms above your head and rolling your shoulders backward and forward. (10 minutes daily)

Keep in mind that all exercises should be taken slowly and you should work up your endurance.  You don’t want to cause unnecessary injury or further aggravate your joints by overdoing it.

2. Diet Treatment – What you eat can have a positive or negative impact on your joints.  Foods that may aggravate the digestive system and result in joint inflammation include fried foods, red meat, hydrogenated oils, dairy products from cows, artificial colors, sweeteners and preservatives, caffeine, chocolate, refined white sugar and flour.

Contrary to the above foods, vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids are known to help relieve and prevent joint pain.  Vitamin C helps to boost the immune system and preserve cartilage.  Good sources of vitamin C include blueberries, strawberries, peaches and sweet peppers.  On the other hand, omega 3’s primarily found in fish helps to relieve joint pain by reducing inflammation.

3. Relaxing Treatment – Treat your body well and don’t overwork it or subject it to irritations such as tight clothing, shoes and high heels.  When you are comfortable, your body can relax.  When your body relaxes, it releases tension.  Great ways to ease tension and stress is to engage in soothing activities you enjoy such as massage, warm bath and stretching.

4. Supplement Treatment – Supplements have proven to be helpful in promoting healthy joints.  The two most common supplements used for treating joint pain and stiffness includes calcium and magnesium – minerals that help to maintain healthy bones and body tissue.

If you find that your joint pain and/or stiffness doesn’t improve, or becomes more bothersome, see your doctor.  You may discover that your joint pain is a result of something more than menopause, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.

    Just thought I would post a little on how True Acupuncture can help menopause.

    Generally speaking, most women suffer from an instability of the endocrine system which reflects in the radial pulses as a yang deficiency or instability thus, treatment of yin deficiency is useless but this is often the approach for many TCM practitioners because the education doesn’t teach much about regulation of the endocrine system via acupuncture.

    Acupuncture or rather True Acupuncture according to Morant, is far more effective at treating menopause symptoms than herbs or anything else I’ve seen. The problem is, most don’t use this style of acupuncture because TCM is the predominate educational system for acupuncture in the US. If you want to know more about this style you can check out acupuncture-n-herbs.com/menopause-acupuncture-n-herbs

    The practitioner at the site has studied Morant and his teachings about True Acupuncture which is far different than TCM acupuncture.

    Anyway, good article!
