I second the turmeric. We also regularly use Traumeel for all kinds of aches and pains. You can take pills, rub a gel into it, or a paste. It may come in other forms, but these are the ones I'm familiar with. We gave the pills to a mare who has arthritis and an old scar tissue problem, as well as rubbing the gel on, and it seems to work really well.
But alas, nothing beats inflammation like making sure you're getting the right stuff in your diet. Taking a good fish oil (a 3-6-9 combo is nice), eating lots of turmeric, cutting things with lots of Omega 6's (you need them, but too much is a bad thing as it causes inflammation) such as red meat, etc. Also LOTS of water to stay hydrated. I imagine a good bit of aches and pains have to do with dehydration of the fascia. Ouchy!
