The link between menopausal status and the influence of timing of exposure to physical activity on the onset of joint symptoms in women.
Chronic joint pain and stiffness, the cardinal symptoms of osteoarthritis, are a major cause of disability and reduced quality of life. Physical activity is believed to play a protective role in the onset of joint pain, however, previous research suggest that the role of physical activity may be different before and after menopause. The aim of this study is to examine theeffect of timing of exposure to physical activity on the onset of joint symptoms separately in premenopausal women and postmenopausal women.
