Pain Killers or Proper Joint Motion?

If someone slaps your arm why does rubbing that area make it feel better? The rubbing motion actually helps to regulate the pain signals going to your brain. Every joint in your body works the same way.

When the joints are moving correctly through their full range of motion it will create the same rubbing motion which will inhibit the pain signals. When a joint isn’t moving correctly the pain signals will travel to the brain causing the sensation of pain. Would taking any sort of pain killers fix the problem or just cover it up?
