Arthritis sufferers sometimes turn to herbs for relief of symptoms. Some herbs may help reduce inflammation in the joints that can cause the pain and swelling they experience, according to the Arthritis Foundation.

Dr. Paul F. Howard, director of Arthritis Health in Scottsdale, Arizona, uses herbs along with traditional medicine for patients.

“Certainly there is a long history of observational medicine that attests to the anti-inflammatory benefits of certain herbal products,” he told the Arthritis Foundation.

Here are 10 herbs that may reduce the pain and inflammation from arthritis:
