Duhuo (Radix Angelicae Pubescentis ) and Qianghuo ( Rhizoma et Radix Notopterygii) can all expel wind, dampness and cold, and relieve pain, treat rheumatic arthralgia with pain and superficial syndrome of wind-cold-damp type. But Qianghuo (Rhizoma et Radix Notopterygii) tends to treat superficial syndrome and has strong action of promoting sweating to expel cold, so it is often used to expel wind and dampness and treat Bi-syndrome of the upper part of the body; Duhuo (Radix Angelicae Pubescentis) has weaker action of eliminating exogenous pathogenic factors and works on the side of expelling wind and dampness, and of relieving pain of Bi-syndrome, so it is more on the side of treating pain of Bi-syndrome in the lower part of the body. Both Duhuo (Radix Angeticae Pubescentis) and Qianghuo (Rhizoma et Radix Notopterygii) can combine together to treat general joint pain so that better effect will be achieve.
