In brief: Mixed modalities.

Take 3-omega fatty acids as fish or flaxseed oil (my preference!).
You should take enough to take 1500-2000mg per day. Regular flaxseed oil is less expensive and has more omega-3, which is antiinflammtory! take adequate vitamin d3, at least 2000/day with calcium. Gentle atraumatic exercises like yoga, cardio-dancing, pilates helps. Take ibuprophen or naproxen. These will help, but not remit!
