Home Remedies

  • One of the best ways of alleviating joint pain is to get plenty of rest and relaxation.
  • If the pain is too great, attempt to immobilize the area with a splint or brace.
  • Cold temperatures reduce blood flow, and therefore reduce tissue swelling.  Apply an ice pack on the affected area every hour for the majority of the day for duration of 15 minutes.
