Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxer, so technically it doesn't help arthritis, but usually with arthritis pain you compensate, and end up stressing muscles which increases pain levels. It would help with that. It also helps you to relax. At least that is my understanding.
I am a little curious though, after reading the online info on it. It says it blocks pain receptors, so theoretically it could help with all kinds of pain, but it is specifically considered a muscle relaxer.
