 Tai Chi - For Chronic Pain Condition

Tai Chi has been considered as a successful alternative treatment for fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition, by US researchers.

Researchers at Tufts Medical Center in Boston found out that fibromyalgia suffers who practiced hour-long sessions of Tai Chi, a Chinese exercise of slow body movements, felt less pain, less fatigue, depression and anxiety, enjoying an overall better quality of life.

According to English.news.cn, they also reported better sleep quality and improved physical conditions.

Widespread pain, fatigue, insomnia and multiple tender points are symptoms of Fibromyalgia.

The syndrome can also cause psychological issues, including anxiety, depression, and memory and concentration problems, sometimes called the "fibromyalgia fog."

The findings are published in the Aug. 19 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
