Qigong's Effects on Stress, Neck-shoulder Pain and Life Quality in a Computerized Office Environment
Dec 27, 2010 -
Qigong can affect the autonomous nervous system with a rhythmic pattern of slow movements and breathing.
The Department of Medical Sciences, Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Uppsala University and University Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden conducted a study to examine the implementation of Qigong for half an hour daily in a computerized office, and to study effects on health state, general health, neck-shoulder and lumbar spine symptoms and stress after six weeks training.
In this study, a crossover intervention study with 37 employees randomized in two groups. A questionnaire was completed one week before starting study and every second week during the training period. After 6 weeks the first group stopped and the second group started the training.
The results show that there was a small significant improvement of neck pain and disability following therapy. This suggests that Qigong training may reduce neck disability in office workers. A longer training period might be needed in further Qigong studies in healthy, normal populations.
This study will be published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice in February of 2011.
