Not News: Tai Chi Reduces Risk of Falls 64%

From Dr. Weil newsletter.

 

Tai Chi To Prevent Falls
Practicing tai chi three times a week could cut seniors’ risk of falling by 64 percent, a significant improvement compared to a 5 percent decline in risk linked to once a week sessions.

Like I said: not news… but good to know.

[On another note, I don’t know if I have gotten around to Posting about it yet, but I saw the latest published guidelines on the management of low back pain – guess what made the list of recommendations? That’s right, tai chi. Chiropractic care was listed too, of course, but all the research available on the subject of very clear: chiropractic care plus exercise is the best approach.]

She couldn’t wait to tell me…

The first patient in the office this morning said that she was amazed at what happened when she practiced the breathing exercise I gave her on her last visit.

Patients show up, usually, with some ache or pain. Once that is dealt with there are often underlying or other issues that come up; stress-related tension is common.

For that and many other reasons we often teach people how to breath, if they are interested. How to breath, so you can relax, so you will be less tense, so you can hold your chiropractic adjustments, so you will feel better: it all goes together.

Anyway, I gave her the most basic of breathing instructions; the same one I give every patient, every tai chi student, and anyone else that cares to listen (It is probably on the Blog somewhere in fact.). She tried it, and…

Almost immediately fell asleep.

(She was pleasantly stunned and amazed.)
