Hi mpalmer

Welcome to our kind of you to try to get help for your freind. He or she woudl be very welcome to join us?

You might get a better response posting this on the living with arthritis forum as this one is usually for us to chat non-arthritis stuff, but for now I sugggest your friend can try:

Heat/ice packs and see which helps?

Some of us use tens machines

Pain relief - painkillers I mean from paracetamol upwards in addition to anti-inflammatories ibuprofen etc. Some are available over the countesr some via the GP.

Physio can be useful as can hydrotherapy and gentle exercise liek swimming?

Hope that helps a bit.
