With musculoskeletal disorders being one of the most common reasons patients visit acupuncturists, wind-damp dispelling herbs are a “must-have” in a herbal pharmacy of a clinic that treats pain.
In TCM, wind-damp dispelling herbs eliminate pathogenic factors from muscles and joints to relieve obstruction and pain associated with bi zheng (painful obstruction syndrome). From a pharmacological perspective, herbs in this category have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, as well as osteogenic, chrondroprotective, and immunosuppressive effects, which makes them effective for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, sciatica, and hemiplegia amongst others.
Watch Dr. John Chen, an expert doctor in both Western pharmacology and Chinese Medicine, as he presents both the TCM and biomedical perspectives of wind-damp dispelling herbs.
