Tai Chi WILL HELP People With Long-Term HEALTH ISSUES: – THURSDAY, Sept. 17, 2015 – – The slow, fluid actions of tai chi – – an ancient Chinese exercise – – may actually help older adults with chronic conditions enhance their physical function, a new review suggests. Specifically, those with breast cancer, heart failure, osteoarthritis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease saw improvements in strength, balance and posture without worsening pain or being out of breath, researchers said. ‘If you’re older and have one of the conditions mentioned in the analysis, tai chi may be an alternative you may use to increase your fitness level,’ said senior researcher Darlene Reid, seat and professor of the Department of Physical Therapy in the University of Toronto in Canada.The objectives of the study had been to elucidate the organic span of such aneurysms and to identify particular independent risk factors for rupture. Methods Sufferers We contained in the study patients with newly diagnosed, unruptured cerebral aneurysms who visited among the study centers through the period from January 2001 through April 2004. Patients were eligible for enrollment if they had been 20 years old or older and had an aneurysm that was 3 mm or even more in the biggest dimension. All individuals who visited a study center through the enrollment period and fulfilled these criteria were asked to join the study. We excluded patients who had had previous episodes of intracranial hemorrhage of untreated or unknown cause.
