Anti-inflammatories work by blocking the production of specific chemicals in the body that cause inflammation. To do this, they block the effects created by Cox-1 and Cox-2 enzymes in the body. These chemicals play a key role in the manufacturing of prostaglandins. By blocking them, anti-inflammatories stop your body from creating prostaglandins, which limits the body from creating an inflammation response that can lead to swelling and pain.
