Arthritis occurs as a result of the breakdown of cartilage which normally protects the joints, absorbs shock from movement and allows the joints to move smoothly.
Cartilage may wear away as a result of aging, overuse, trauma, infection or even autoimmune diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Without the normal amount of cartilage, bones may rub together and cause pain, swelling, stiffness or inflammation. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), arthritic pain (painful obstruction syndrome or Bi Zheng) can be caused and/or aggravated by Wind, Cold, Damp or Heat. Pain of any sort may also be caused or aggravated by Blood stagnation. Feng Shi Xiao Tong Pian is a warming formula best used in cases of Wind-Cold-Damp type painful obstruction syndrome (Bi Syndrome) which is further complicated by Blood stagnation.
