Introduction to Joint Pain
Joint pain (medically referred to as Arthralgia) can be caused by a reaction to medication, injury or another illness such as arthritis.
In the case of injuries Aloe Vera seems to speed up the rate at which cells in the body divide and so reduces the time it takes the injury to heal, and thus removing the joint pain.
In the case of illnesses such as arthritis, where there is no known cure, Aloe Vera helps more by calming the inflammation and swelling that causes the pain rather than curing the root cause.
