How to Get Relief from Joint Pain Caused By Menopause

As we age and enter menopause, inflammation in our joints increases, causing pain, stiffness, and sometimes swelling.

What Can We Do?

We can make many non-medical and lifestyle changes to help alleviate these aches and pains.

Exercise strengthens joints and helps us stay flexible. Especially helpful, low-impact options are swimming, the elliptical, cycling, hiking, yoga, and tai chi.

Low impact Activity

– Diets low in omega-3 fatty acids exacerbate inflammation, so eat tuna, salmon or mackerel. – Other inflammatory fighters include blueberries, cherries, soybeans and spinach.

Good Nutrition

Practice stress relief techniques such as meditation, walking the dog, cooking, chatting with a friend, etc., to avoid stress.


Stretching eases joint pain by lubricating joints with a gentle motion. An added benefit is that it helps maintain a fuller range of motion as we age.


Joint pain is made worse by dehydration, so drinking more water can help. Add lemon, cucumber, or a couple of raspberries for added flavor if you don’t like plain water.
