Gentle - and I mean gentle - exercise does wonders for joint and general pain. Gently stretching the muscles keeps the body supple and reduces pain. It doesn't have to be fancy exercises like tai chi or anything like that: just moving the legs in and out and lifting and stretching the arms is good enough. Short, slow, walks also get the body supple. Therefore reducing pain. I'd certainly take this advice and not just rely on painkillers. However, it is still important to take the medication a doctor prescribes. If you're unsure about this advice, you can see what your doctor says. I am certainly not advising you go jogging or running: just that you do gentle walking.

I do hope I've helped.

You're right, DaviesBrown: I'd follow your advice.

1. Gentle exercise will keep the joints supple and make movement easier.
2. Therapy does heal the mind and will make handling pain easier to deal with [I am assuming you're referring to mind therapy].
3. Massage does ease the joints and muscles and IS incredibly relaxing and therapeutic.
4. Meditation is popular worldwide for its healing properties and helping to relieve many kinds of pain.
5. Supplements will cushion - for lack of a better word - the joints, therefore reducing the pain of bones rubbing together in the joints. I would advise you ask your doctor which supplements are best for arthritis and other kinds of physical pain.

I hope you don't mind me elaborating on your post, DaviesBrown: I just felt it important to do so.
