Thankfully, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Here are 4 ways to reduce knee pain in menopause:

Medication

Work with your doctor to find the best treatment plan for you. Depending on your pain levels, you may be able to take over the counter drugs such as Aleve, or Motrin. If the pain is not going away, cortisone injections into the knee joint can reduce pain and inflammation.

Losing just 10% of your body weight puts less pressure on your knees and improves function. Consider maintaining your weight as a lifestyle change, so you can continue to keep your knees healthy.

    • Hi,
      Putting on music helps me, and outlining the post ahead of time. You need an office or bedroom with a door that locks so you won’t be disturbed. That will really help your concentration. If you outline your blog post ahead of time, have it in front of you, and just concentrate on putting your blog post up. Hope this helps.

Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos
