Flying Up the Stairs

Flying Up the Stairs: What You Need to Know about Menopausal Arthritis to Break Free by Phyllis Rickel-Wong, Endover Press, 2012, paperback, 390 pages.

This is the first book devoted entirely to the topic of menopausal arthritis — the increase in joint pain many women experience during the hormonal imbalance of menopause. Health writer Phyllis Rickel-Wong recounts the history of medical understanding of the condition. Two doctors first identified it in a 1925 journal article, and a primary complaint of their patients — knee pain when climbing or descending stairs — inspired the book’s title. Rickel-Wong describes the symptoms and other factors associated with menopausal arthritis, and she presents exercises, weight-loss tips and other advice for healing. She reviews scientific research, extensively citing her sources, and offers a comprehensive natural healing plan based upon her findings.
