CHRONIC PAIN. Students often find anything between mild pain relief and complete alleviation of chronic pain by using Tai Chi and/or QiGong, in some cases finding complete relief from long-term chronic pain conditions.
ScienceDaily (June 17, 2009) A new study by The George Institute for International Health has found Tai Chi to have positive health benefits for musculoskeletal pain. The results of the first comprehensive analysis of Tai Chi suggest that it produces positive effects for improving pain and disability among arthritis sufferers.
The researchers are now embarking on a new trial to establish if similar benefits can be seen among people with chronic low back pain.
