Ankylosing Spondylitis and Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs are an alternative form of treatment for ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Pain and stiffness in the back from chronic inflammation are the common symptoms of AS. White willow (Salix alba), yarrow (Achillea millefolium), and lobelia (Lobelia inflata) are herbs that have an anti-inflammatory characteristic. Consult a health care professional or specialist prior to starting Chinese herb administration.
