Joint pain, whether or not related to osteoarthritis, can be relieved using simple methods. We offer 5 natural solutions.


Glucosamine is effective against sensitive joints. Manufactured naturally by the body, it protects joint cartilage. It is called osteoarthritis when this production has diminished: the joints can become painful. To remedy this, apply a glucosamine-based cream locally after an effort or simply in case of pain. In tablet form, the dosage is 1.5 g glucosamine sulphate per day.

Cayenne pepper

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends the use of cayenne pepper creams or tablets. Thanks to its active compound, capsaicin, it helps to combat pain related to sensitive joints or osteoarthritis. It is advised to apply locally up to 4 times per day a cream enriched with 0.025% to 0.075% capsaicin. The effects appear approximately 2 weeks after the first applications.


Acupuncture also helps to reduce the pain caused by joint disorders, although it does not completely cure them. It helps to reduce inflammation related to osteoarthritis, thus alleviating pain and improving mobility. It seems to be especially effective in cases of osteoarthritis of the knee. However, a minimum of 5 to 6 sessions is required to see an improvement.


Hydrotherapy in all its forms (balneotherapy, thermal cures, spa, etc...) seems to give good results on articulatory disorders. Warm water helps to relax muscles, and exercises and massages performed in water are more beneficial for osteoarthritis than those performed out of water. Hydrotherapy thus helps restore mobility while relieving pain.

Devil's Claw

Devil's Claw or Harpagophytum is an effective natural remedy for joint sensitivity, thanks to its anti-inflammatory action. It can also be used by sportsmen and women to prevent pain. It is advised to take 3 to 6 tablets per day with meals. A treatment based on devil's claw must be taken at least 2 or 3 months to be able to observe the first effects.
