Yes.: Yes, start with resting the affected region (limb or joint), icing, limb elevation, immobilization are good starting points for arthritic pain. Over-the -counter (otc) remedies are also a reasonable next step such as a variety of analgesic balms/creams/ointments, pain patches, oral analgesics (ex. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) or motrin), anti-inflammatories (ex. Motrin, aleve) are a reasonable next option.

Not as good but....: Exercise, bracing, and splinting can help. Warmth (warm water) gives relief. Immobility stiffens. Otc aleve, (naproxen) Motrin will help. Capsaicin creams will alleviate pain over knne, hands, ankles, and feet. Weight loss is important for weight bearing joint pain, back-knee, hips, feet.
