It depends on what type of arthritis you have. Starting with osteoarthritis simple analgesics or pain killers are used. The next group would include non steroidal anti inflammatory's, then steroidal inflammatory. and finally disease modifying drugs that interfere with the immune systems ability to cause the trouble some inflammation and joint damage. There are over a hundred different forms of arthritis so treatment would depend on the type of arthritis encountered.

One of the most common times that breasts might feel sore is when they are beginning to develop. First you might notice a small button-like lump beneath the nipple area. The m…edical name for this is the breast bud , and it is often present in guys and girls. The breast bud may be a little tender and may cause you to worry but it's a normal part of puberty Most PMS symptoms, including breast soreness, should disappear as your period begins. Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, might be helpful. Wearing a supportive bra might also help. Healthy eating, regular exercise, and getting enough sleep are really your best bets for lessening the ache. You might try cutting down on salty foods and foods that contain caffeine, like coffee, tea, and even chocolate. Try caffeine-free soda or herbal tea instead. Some girls find that eating a diet rich in calcium helps with PMS symptoms.
If you are suffering from the arthritic disease gout then nuts can aggravate the problem as they are high in purines and will tend to push up the production of uric acid leadi…ng to the production of uric acid crystal collecting in joints and other tissue causing inflammation and pain. However it should not have any great effect on conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
It depends what you can afford. I have a physiotherapist to put my muscles and joints back into place. I go to acupuncture and crainiopathy as well, once a week (though after …12 sessions it goes to once a month. You should try that. You must also reduce your stress levels, and don't do repetitive exercises for longer than 20 minutes. Also try to get yourself at least 8 hours sleep a night.
I would take your pet into be examined by your Veterinarian first. He or she will recommend what they think is appropriate. There is Rimadyl which is by prescription only and …it works wonders. There are also things you can buy yourself to help out such as Glyco Flex and that can be given with the Rimadyl. Good luck.

That depends on what is responsible for the pain. You are either looking for a anti inflammatory if the pain is the result of inflammation. or if there is no inflammation in t…he joint then you may just need a simple painkiller. Arthritis is dealt with in different ways depending on the nature of the disease, everything from just pain killers to anti inflammatory steroidal anti inflammatory disease modifying drugs and so on.
To date there is no clinical evidence that diet has any effect on arthritic pain asside from that found with Gouty arthritis.
That depends on the cause of the pain and whether the pain is of recent onset or chronic (ongoing, longstanding). If you do not already know the causative factor/s of the pain…, first check with you own physician/general practitioner. In my experience, for chronic pain a TENS machine (used with your physician/general practitioner's blessing) can provide effective natural pain relief for many (but not all) people. You can buy them for home use and they are about the size of a mobile 'phone.
Most ankle pain is due to either an impact to the area (bruise) or a muscle/tendon sprain or strain. For a bruised area, best course of treatment is to ice the area for a few …days. For a sprain or strain, the "RICE" formula is the way to go: rest, ice, compression, elevate. Try to avoid activities that will aggravate the injury. When the muscle/tendon starts to heal, slowly begin some strengthening exercises, combined with some heat and massage to the area to keep the muscle/tendon relaxed.
Probably some of the best groin pain treatment is the manipulation and massaging treatment. This might result in less damage than long treatment of steroids and anti-inflammat…ory medications.
The first thing to determine is the cause of the rib pain. Sometimes it can be as simple as a muscle strain, which can be treatment with Ibruprofen and rest. If the pain conti…nues, it's best to see your doctor.
Either take a simple analgesic which is simply a pain killer or if there is evidence of inflammation an inflammatory of some kind.
The best treatment will depend on the degree of pain, the location of the pain and the source of the pain. If you have body pain because of a broken rib, nothing short of a tr…ip to the doctor for high-power prescription pain medication and stabilization of the broken rib is going to work. In contrast, a simple "I overdid it today and now my body hurts from being more active than normal" can often be treated at home with a nice soak in a hot bath tub and a good night's sleep. There are a lot of treatments for body pain, ranging from medications to rest to manipulation therapies - I've listed some highlights below starting from do-it-yourself to seeking professional assistance. In general, I would suggest trying non-medication treatments before resorting to medications just because every drug does have a small risk of side effects. Some non-medication treatments for body pain include rest, relaxing in hot water (such as a jacuzzi, hot tub or just a bath tub with hot water) or applying heat (like a rice bag or an electric heating pad) or ice (a bag of frozen corn or peas, with the chunks broken up inside the bag, wrapped in a soft towel works well). If you have someone else around, you can try having that person massage the sore area, either with shallow or deep pressure, and with the option of massage oils if available and preferred. If you have access to a chiropractor or doctor, he/she can perform specific stretches or manipulations to release tension or realign joints. Medication options include most over-the-counter pain medications (Tylenol, Aleve, Advil, aspirin, Excedrin, Motrin, etc.) as well as some prescription medications like muscle relaxers or prescription pain relievers.
There are number of ways. 1. Use an anti-inflammatory medication such as an NSAID. Common ones are Ibuprofen, Naprosyn, Celebrex. etc. 2. Get a corticosteroid injection into t…he hip, typically by xray guidance. 3. Get an injection of joint lubricant into the hip (Orthovisc, Simvisc, ect), again by xray guidance. 4. For severe pain, a narcotic such as vicodin or percocet may help. 5. Finally, surgery entails replacing the hip, called total hip arthroplasty. 6. See an orthopedic surgeon.
Without being a medical professional, chronic upper back pain can be eased by certain posture positions that do not put stress on the area or threaten a compensatory injury fr…om bad posture. Back massagers are also helpful for temporary relief but should always be used according to instructions. These suggestions should be talked over with your doctor who may also be able to offer other options for chronic pain.
