Anti-inflammatory medicine tends to help me a lot with my aches and pains. Why is this?

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) usually help with conditions aggravated by inflammation (the suffix “itis” means “inflammation of”). Some common inflammatory conditions would be arthritis (inflammation of a joint), plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, posterior tibialis tendonitis (shin splints), and lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow). Physical therapy may be beneficial for inflammatory conditions that do not improve through rest and medication.
