Natural remedies for arthritis can help take the edge of joint pain and stiffness. In arthritis, the lining of the joints becomes inflamed. This happens in the cartilage, which you can think of as a shock-absorbing layer inside the joint, in between two bones.
In arthritis, the normally smooth cartilage becomes damaged. Without normal, healthy cartilage, the bones have less protection as they move past each other in the joint, resulting in pain, swelling and stiffness.
