On the basis of tonifying liver and kidney, the clinical symptoms of Ankylosing spondylitis can be improved by promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis and eliminating pathogenic factors.


Ankylosing spondylitis is a kind of arthropathy of rheumatic immune disease. The pathogenesis of ankylosing spondylitis is not very clear in current medical research. Because of the recurrence of the disease and the prolongation of the disease, the quality of life of the patients has been seriously affected. Traditional Chinese medicine has long known its etiology and pathogenesis, and it is very effective in clinical treatment. Based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine and modern physicians' understanding of its etiology and pathogenesis, and starting from the function and characteristics of liver and kidney, this paper explores the basis of treating ankylosing spondylitis from liver and kidney, with a view to providing new ideas for the clinical treatment of ankylosing spondylitis.
