Does it make any sense at all to use herbs like polygonum aviculare to treat/relieve degenerative conditions in spine and joints?

They say a lot of herbs and self treatment could aggravete things.

Drugs or accupressure on the contrary seem to aggravate symptoms.

Chiropractic treatment helped like miracle to remove serious and acute symptoms but secondary discomfort is still at the same level.

As regards to polygonum aviculare namely, it said to containt silicon acid/ compounds that allegedly could harm teeth

    It makes no sense at all for this purpose. It interferes with mineral absorption, which is the last thing you want to do with bone or joint problems.
