Tai chi helps relieve chronic neck pain image

Tai chi, which combines deep breathing with slow and deliberate movements, is another option for people suffering from chronic neck pain. It’s just as effective as standard exercise, a new study has found.

It’s been tried out on a group of 114 people who had been suffering from chronic neck pain for at least three months. The group either performed Tai chi or did nothing at all for their neck pain.

By the end of the three months, those who did Tai chi reported less pain, disability and an overall improvement in their quality of life compared with those who did nothing.

Tai chi is also as effective as standard exercises, say researchers from Harvard Medical School.

The exercise, which developed in China, has already been proven to be helpful for back pain, rheumatism and psychological disorders.
