RE: A Review of a Double Blind Comparative Study of Aerobic Exercise versus Tai Chi in Managing Symptoms in Patients with Fibromyalgia

in #steemstemlast year

Fascinating. I know a friend of mine with fibromyalgia swears by yoga as a management for self care to prevent flare ups. I wonder if there are similiar studies, or whether tai chi and yoga could be seen as on par here. Does this mean you will start tai chi?

Sort:  

There are studies which show the benefits of yoga with managing fibromyalgia as well, and I almost critiqued one of those but chose tai chi because its something I would like to do more of. Yoga is definitely a similar mind-body medicine that employs physical activity and meditation and when I am practicing regularly my pain levels are extremely low and manageable. I have done tai chi in the past, and I wish I kept up with my practices because I forget most of the flows now :\ When I can afford to take a class, I'll definitely be doing it. For now, yoga it is ;)
