Non-Drug Pain Relief

Treatments for arthritis range from exercise, weight loss, and rest to pills, injections and surgery. These treatments can greatly improve your well-being, but they don't always eliminate your pain completely. When you need more relief, the products that follow may be added to your treatment plan. You still might not be totally pain-free, but you may feel a lot more comfortable.
