Yes,

Because omega-3s fight inflammation, their role in managing arthritis has been highly studied. Studies of people taking fish oil supplements or eating more fatty fish have found that they have less morning stiffness, joint stiffness and pain, and less need for medication.

You should certainly try it for a couple of months and see the results,

Cheers
