Damage to the joints or auto immune disorders can cause pain, stiffness and inflammation in joints that are initial symptoms of arthritis. People suffer from morning stiffness which goes away after few hours. Excess flow of the synovial fluids in the joints or deficiency, both can lead to swelling in the joints. The inflammatory cells, which are mainly, the white cells and inflammatory molecules are small proteins, normally peptides, are released into the tissues found around the joints and the area feels warm as the joint swells. The swelling can vary depending on the kind of arthritis. OA is the condition mostly caused by calcium deficiency in body and it causes pain in the lower back, hips, feet and knees. The inflammation happens due to cartilage breakdown and swelling in the joints can be seen. To relieve joint stiffness for short duration, one may have to apply hot or cold bags to the joints.

In RA, the stiffness, pain, swelling and the inflammation is caused by the rapid division of cells that thickens the synovium and the inflamed cells release enzyme which digests the bone as well as the cartilage leading to erosion and causes warmth and stiffness in the region. RA starts with small joints e.g. the hands and feet. It affects both sides of the joint and the condition of pain develops and causes fatigue, which worsens over years. There are many pain relievers available for the condition but one need to be careful using the pain relievers as it can have side effects. Natural ways to relieve arthritis pain involve - simple yoga methods and herbal Rumoxil capsules that contain anti-arthritis and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Balsamodendron Mukul, Vanda Roxburghii, Colchicum Inteum Baker, Withania Somnifera, Caryophyllus Aromaticus etc.

Guggul or Balsamodendron Mukul is believed to be a natural weapon to relieve joint stiffness. The gum of the plant is used to cure ulcers, and inhalation of the fumes of the gum helps to cure brochititis. Bio-compounds in guggul include diterpenoidstriterpenoids, esters, lignans, flavonoids, guggultetrols, lignans, steroids and various volatile oils. The compound octanordammarane terpenes manusumbionic acid and other oleo resins can increase leucocytes and stimulate phagocytosis. Natural ways to relieve arthritis pain provided by guggul reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in arteries, and is more effective than laboratory based cure clofibrate (that has been withdrawn from medicine stores due to toxic side effects).

A study on gum resin shows the anti arthritic activities are found even when it is used in crude state. The test on laboratory animals found it inhibited the full development of primary lesions of arthritis and reduced the severity of the lesions in the groups treated with the gum extract. Various other studies also support its effectiveness in osteoarthritis.

Vanda Roxburghii is another plant extract found in natural ways to relieve arthritis pain, which contains Heptacosane and Octacosanol responsible for anti-inflammatory effects and can also relieve joint stiffness. Colchicum Inteum was tested on rats in laboratory and it showed delay in increase in joint diameter and its anti inflammatory effects were equivalent to aspirin.
