In brief: 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.
