Tai Chi and Qi Gong as a Complementary Treatment in Parkinson's Disease
November 25, 2020 - In a Polish research to be published by Complementary Therapies in Medicine, the scientists did a systematic review of the effectiveness of Tai Chi and Qigong training on motor function in Parkinson's disease.
The articles included in the review showed several limitations, such as a small sample size, heterogeneity of stages of Parkinson's disease, and diversified duration of the intervention.
Current state of knowledge shows that both Tai Chi and Qigong interventions might be a promising complementary therapy in Parkinson's disease. Future research is required to establish the optimal training program for each stage of Parkinson's disease.
