Tai Chi for Osteoporosis

tai-chi-clipart-5

 

Designed by Dr. Paul Lam, physician and Tai Chi master

There are many ways that Tai Chi helps people with osteoporosis. An excellent study showed Tai Chi slowed down the loss of bone density approximately three fold. When people with osteoporosis fall they are more likely to sustain a fracture. Many studies have shown that Tai Chi reduces falls. People with osteoporosis often have arthritis and loss of function due to age and weakness. Tai Chi relieves pain from arthritis, improves balance and the ability to do daily activities. Tai Chi helps people feel more
relaxed and improves mental strength so they can cope better with their conditions. Injury from falling is the major problem of the people with osteoporosis. There are several measures you can take to help reduce risks of falls; Tai Chi is one of the most effective measures shown by medical studies to prevent falls. Once you have learned the set, your instructor will help you apply Tai Chi principals in your daily activities to prevent falls.

Benefits of Tai Chi:
1. Relieves stress and depression      2. Improves concentration and memory
3. Improves balance and coordination     4. Builds muscular strength and stamina
5. Improves posture and biomechanics      6. Increases circulation, heart and lung function      7. Enhances the flow QI      8. Integrates body and mind

How Does It Work?

Medical authorities agree that suitable exercise for people with arthritis should incorporate components that can improve muscular strength, flexibility and fitness. Increased muscular strength supports and protects joints, which will reduce pain. Flexibility exercises also help to reduce pain and stiffness, thus improving
mobility. Stamina or fitness is important for overall health and
proper function of your heart, lungs and muscles.
