Mechanism of action of Ibuprofen

Ibuprofen is propionic acid derivatives.
It directly act on cox 1 and cox2 selative enzyme and stop the pain mechanism.

How pain ,inflammation are occour

There are no store of prostaglandin in the body they are directly synthesized form membrane lipids when get some external/appropriate stimuli.
Stimuli activate hydrolases ,also stimulate phospholipase A .probably intracellular ca+ increase.
Then cyclooxygenase pathway starts.
Phospholipase A is responsible for arachidonic acid synthesis .
Arachidonic acid is cyclooxygenase and produce PGG2  and PGH2 .
Cyclooxygenase are two type enzyme COX1 and COX 2.
PGH2 is isomerases and produce PGE2 ,PGD2, PGF2 .These three are mainly responsible for pain ,fever and inflammation .
PGH2 is then converted into TXA2 by the procress thromboxane synthase .TXA2 is not stable in this state for long time it is converted into TXB2 suddenly.
it also converted into platelet.
PGH2 is also converted into PGI2 by the procress prostacyclin synthase.PGI2 is not stable it is converted into 6 keto-PGF1.
This PGD2 ,PGE2, PGF2 are activate the neuron which act on the brain for sensetion of pain ,inflammatory, fever.

How ibuprofen act on body

Ibuprofen directly bind with COX1 and COX2 enzyme and stop all the step of synthesis of PGD2 ,PGE2 and PGF2 .So no inflammation ,pain and fever are occour.
