Willow bark is available as a capsule or liquid supplement, or a dried herb. It helps to treat conditions such as headaches, lower back pain and osteoarthritis. Turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory, relieves pain in osteoarthritis. Eugenol, the active ingredient in cloves, is a natural pain reliever. Cloves supplements aid in treating headaches, toothaches and arthritic inflammation. Ice packs help to reduce inflammation and swelling immediately after an injury. Moist heat packs may provide relief for painful joints in arthritic patients, notes Healthline.

Ginger extract may help in muscle pain and headaches. Feverfew helps to treat headaches, toothaches, stomachaches, migraines and rheumatoid arthritis. Devil's claw may help in managing arthritis and relieving lower back pain. There is a need for more studies on the effectiveness of feverfew and devil's claw in pain management, suggests Everyday Health.
