The treatment of osteoarthritis with Chinese herbal medicine

The treatment of osteoarthritis with Chinese herbal medicine

This is a narrative literature review to give insight into whether Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) is a valid form of treatment for osteoarthritis (OA). Current western medical thought is migrating away from classifying OA as an aging related disease to one caused by loading and frequency of joint use. TCM considers OA to be bi syndrome where qi and blood stagnation manifests locally at the joints. The deformity is a result of fluid accumulation and long term blood stagnation that leads to malnutrition and eventual deformity of the joints. Pubescent Angelica and Taxillus Decoction (du huo ji sheng tang) was found to be the most commonly prescribed formulae with the greatest volume of research. Results were constantly positive, but a large scale trial would be desirable.
