Five must-knows about joint aches from Jane
- If you do have a recurring joint problem or ache that will not go away, please see your healthcare provider or a specialist such as a physiotherapist or osteopath. Some doctors can refer you onto a specialist.
- Remember that while some doctors might suggest that you treat the symptoms with pain killers, a specialist will look and treat the actual cause of the problem.
- I advise clients who have joint or muscle problems that don’t go away, to ask to see a specialist sooner rather than later – this can really help long term, and stops one problem leading to others.
- Please don’t be frightened “try before you buy!” if you seek treatment from a specialist. Ask them how long they have been treating patients and if they understand the menopausal body.
