In brief: Look at all

Complimentary modalities from acupuncture to meditation.
Each one can help each individual differently. Look at anti-inflammatory medical foods as well, such as limbrel, which, in one study, suggested it could help with pain after ninety days almost as much as alleve; some patients benefit greatly, others do not. Try all modalities that are not bad for you and see what works for you.

In brief: Find the cause

Find out the cause of the pain rather than taking drugs to obliterate your perception of the pain.
Treat the cause and get rid of the pain. Treat the pain and keep the patient sick forever.
