Bone and joint pain

Painful joints can be a problem associated with menopause, and can also be a side effect of drugs used to treat breast cancer, such as aromatase inhibitors. Sometimes joints can feel stiff and sore.

What can help?

  • Exercise can help to maintain a range of movement and maintain a healthy weight. You can speak to an exercise physiologist about what exercise would be good for you.
  • You may wish to talk to a dietitian and ask about recommended diet or vitamin supplements. 

Talk to your general practitioner if you have bone or joint pain to check that you don’t have other joint changes, such as arthritis.
