Tai Chi, Qigong and the Treatment of Arthritis.
Tai chi is considered both a martial art and a series of low impact exercises. It is also a tool in the toolbox of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that has been in existence for hundreds of years. Qigong is also a set of low impact, gentle exercises that have been in existence for thousands of years and is also considered a tool in the TCM toolbox. The present article reviews some studies on the treatment of arthritis that have used tai chi or qigong exercises.
