Tai Chi and hydrotherapy shown to significantly help arthritis sufferers

Jun 19, 2007

Both Tai Chi and water-based exercise can help alleviate pain and stiffness of chronic osteoarthritis, according to a study by researchers in Australia. Researchers from the George Institute for International Health at the University of Sydney published their results in the current issue of the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism.


Researchers studied 152 men and women over 60 with chronic osteoarthritis. The research team randomly assigned participants to hydrotherapy classes, Tai Chi classes or a waiting group. The classes, one hour in length, were offered two times per week. After 12 weeks, both groups showed significant improvements on scores measuring pain and physical function. At 24 weeks, researchers found that the improvements had been sustained, with the greatest improvement measured in the hydrotherapy group.
