<< For  patients  with  painful  knee  osteoarthritis,  tai  chi  was  as  helpful  as  physical  therapy  in  reducing  pain and  improving  physical  functioningaccording  to  a  new  study  partially  funded  by  the  National  Center for  Complementary  and  Integrative  Health [NIH-NCCIH] >>

<< Previous  research (..)  has  shown  that  tai  chi—a  traditional Chinese  mind  and  body  practice  that  combines  meditation  with  deep  breathingrelaxation,  and  gentle movements—can  reduce  pain  and  improve  physical  functioning  in  patients  with  knee  osteoarthritis, but  this  is  the  first  study  in  which  tai  chi  was  compared  with  a  standard  treatment  that’s  known  to  be helpful >>
