Tai Chi Fights Arthritis and Diabetes

Posted Oct 27 2008 11:23am

Research by Tufts Medical Center claims Tai Chi, an ancient form of Chinese exercise, DECREASES knee pain from arthritis. Reuters reports:

The study provided the latest evidence that tai chi may offer benefits for people with arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation advocacy group recommends it for improving the quality of life of people with arthritis.

Tai chi is a form of exercise developed in China centuries ago. With tai chi, a person slowly performs a series of postures or movements that are low impact and put little stress on the muscles and joints. It can improve muscle function, balance and flexibility.

That’s why I started doing yoga. Oh, and a previous study determined Tai Chi also helps CONTROL type-2 diabetes. Pretty cool!
