Everyone gets the occasional joint ache or pain — a little soreness in the shoulder, a twinge in the knee — but research shows that women are more severely affected by joint pain than men. While our joints do become more vulnerable as we age, there are things women can do to maintain joint health and eliminate pain.
Orthopedic surgeons affiliated with Providence Orthopedic Institute explain why women are more susceptible to joint problems, what women can do to keep their joints healthy as they age and treatment options for those experiencing joint pain.
