Joint pain can be the result of injury, but more often than not it is caused by arthritis and perhaps specifically rheumatoid arthritis. Each creates or is characterized by an inflammation around the body's joints, and this inflammation creates joint pain and tenderness that can make it uncomfortable to move the arm, leg, hip, or other body part using that joint. Fortunately, a number of herbal remedies and alternative medicine practices can offer joint pain relief.
Clinically known as arthralgia, joint pains can occur as a result of many health conditions including autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Overuse and sports injuries are common causes of joint pain, and in these cases rest, ice, compression, and later on heat treatments can provide pain relief and healing.
Natural Remedies for Joint Pain Relief
In more or less all cases, joint pain is caused by or at least includes inflammation, so anti-inflammatory foods, herbal remedies, and supplements are well advised for your joint pain. Improved diet and collagen-supporting supplements may help to restore or clean out the joints and repair protective and connective tissue around the painful joints, including cartilage between the bones. Borage oil and other essential oils rubbed into painful joints may restore function and relieve pain, and supplemental omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil can help improve joint function from the inside.

[YEA] I suffered from joint pain for a period of over two months. I took antibiotics continously to no avail. However one day I was told by a friend that aloe vera could work. I started by boiling aloe vera juice extacted from the sap. In addition I would also rub the gel on my joints and experience healing.
