Joint pain caused by things like arthritis or an injury can be extremely frustrating to deal with. In fact, it can make menial tasks like walking extremely hard to do. While there are surgeries that you can undergo to help with debilitating pain, there may be some small approaches that you can take instead. 


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen are great at targeting both pain and inflammation. As long as you aren't on blood thinners and you don't have an underlying condition, you may be able to take these a few times a day for a few weeks. Just make sure you take each pill with a little bit of food so that you don't upset your stomach. Depending on how severe your pain is, your doctor may recommend increasing your usage and dosage as needed. 

CBD Cream

If you want to find a more natural relief to your pain and inflammation, then you may want to try something like a CBD cream. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is derived from cannabis.  Because of this, it is considered to be a more organic and green approach to pain and inflammation relief. 

  • Pain

CBD is said to help patients relieve some joint pain caused by injury or arthritis. Typically, when CBD cream is used in conjunction with an over-the-counter NSAID, patients seem to find an improvement in their pain overall. 

  • Swelling

CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties which means that it can help relieve that uncomfortable sensation and pressure that your swelling is causing. By rubbing a CBD cream directly onto your swollen joints, you can help that swelling go down and find relief that way. 

  • How Do I Use It?

To use CBD cream for pain and inflammation, take a small, pea-sized amount and gently rub it directly into your skin where there is joint pain. Depending on how much pain you are experiencing and if the pain resurfaces, you can continue using the cream as directed. If for some reason you suffer from itching or any sort of rash, discontinue use and contact your physician. 

With a combination of both NSAIDs and CBD cream, you can hopefully get rid of both your pain and your swelling. To learn more about both of these over-the-counter solutions, reach out to a pharmacist or your physician today to ensure that you are safe to move forward with using both of them.
