Washington: Post-menopausal women, who often suffer from joint pain, could find some long-term relief by taking estrogen-only medication, a new study has revealed.Previous studies of estrogen`s influence on joint symptoms had produced mixed results, so researchers examined the findings of the Women`s Health Initiative (WHI), the largest-ever study of the use of hormonal therapy in post-menopausal women.They examined the findings of the women enrolled in the Estrogen-Alone program, in which women who had undergone a hysterectomy received either estrogen or a placebo."We found that post-menopausal women who received estrogen-only medication reported significantly lower frequency of joint pain than women who received a placebo," Rowan T. Chlebowski, MD, PhD, corresponding author of the study and a Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute lead researcher said.
