Tight Hips, Frozen Shoulder & Joint Pain in Midlife Women – Dr Vonda Wright

Today we cover all things musculoskeletal for women going peri and post menopause with Dr. Vonda Wright. who is a double board certified orthopaedic sports surgeon. She has 20 years of research and caring of elite athletes, executives and high performance people.

I was lucky to find her through the Feisty Menopause group, which I found through Dr. Stacy Sims and the host of the Hit Play Not Pause podcast Selene Yeager. All the women in this group are incredibly inspiring and put out amazing content for women making the menopause transition. See show notes for links.


Dr. Wright cares for professional athletes of the NFL, PGA, World Rugby, the Pittsburgh & Atlanta ballet theaters as well as collegiate and elite masters competitors. And ordinary people too. She has written 5 books in the fitness and performance space which spurred a fitness line in 500 Dick’s sporting goods stores (thats a Brand in the US). She also speaks worldwide for corporate, foundation & family office audiences and frequently contributes content to the US national media.

Currently, Dr. Wright serves as the inaugural President & Surgeon of the legacy Hughston Orthopaedics Group- Southeast based in Lake Nona where she provides elite sports medicine to both athletes and active people. She’s right up our alley as an active aging and longevity researcher. When she treats clients she really takes a whole person precision approach and offers individual HealthSpan and Longevity Advising and group retreats.

Her mantra is “Ideas are easy – Execution is everything”.

    This was a very good discussion on cartilage building and arthritis – really found it useful but some of the things Dr. Wright said were a bit inaudible but I intend to re-listen closely.
    I am 77 years old and generally healthy, active (hiking around the hills of Hong Kong) and still working part time but for the past 4-5 years I am getting body aches- both arms, and knees/heels on one side only. I have never had falls, aches or pains before so I am a bit unsure about what’s going on. I am told its age related not arthritis. Can we blame everything on aging?
    I am not fat but a few lbs overweight, always been this body shape. I eat healthy and stay tuned in to my body and mind so this talk was good for me. Would love to hear more about pain for joints.
    I have been taking Glucosamine Chondroitin for about 5 months now and it has really helped- knee ain gone for now. Doing lots of exercises, stretching and yoga too. Wearing proper shoes and slowed down some activities a bit so as not to strain and overdo (not 50 or 60 anymore)- all this helps but pain comes and goes. So annoying!
    Not sure

      Hi Rehana. I am glad you enjoyed the podcast. You are doing lots of great protocols. There are a few things you could still tweak and add. Keep listening or get in touch with me at zora@hackmyage.com and I can guide you a bit more.

    Would like to get more information on aging aches and pains – a podcast I can listen to about related discomforts and how to manage them.
    Thank you for this!
