The Link Between Fascia and Menopause

If you’re going through menopause, you might have noticed some changes in your body. You might feel more tired, moody, or hot. 

Did you know that menopause can also affect your fascia, joints, and ligaments? 😱

Fascia is the connective tissue surrounding your muscles, organs, and bones. It helps your body move and function properly. 

Estrogen, one of the hormones which stops being produced during menopause, plays a role in keeping your fascia healthy and flexible because it helps make collagen. When estrogen levels drop, your fascia can become stiffer, drier, less pliable, and more prone to inflammation. 

This can cause pain and reduced mobility in your joints and ligaments. 😢

But don’t worry. There are ways to cope with these changes and keep your fascia happy and healthy. Here are some tips: 

  • Stay hydrated. 💧
  • Stretch regularly. 🧘‍♀️
  • Massage your muscles. 🙌
  • Exercises can help your fascia stay strong and resilient. 🚴‍♀️
  • Eat a balanced quality diet. 🥗
  • See what taking gluten out does
  • Take a high quality fish oil

Following these tips, you can help your fascia, joints, and ligaments. 

And if you find that all this is not keeping pain and degeneration at bay, then maybe explore using hormone replacement as therapy, especially if you’ve tried everything else.
