Effect of Tai Chi on Patients with Lumbar Muscle Strain
May 15, 2015 -
A recent study by Henan Polytechnic University in China observed the effect of Tai Chi exercise on the patients with the chronic lumbar muscle strain under the intervention treatment of auricular plaster.

Seventy-four middle-aged and elderly patients, suffering from the chronic lumbar muscle strain, are randomly and equally divided into an observation group and a control group, with 37 patients in each group. The patients in the control group do Tai Chi exercise, while those in the observation group are treated by the auricular plaster therapy in addition to Tai Chi exercise. Evaluate and compare the disease conditions of the patients in the two groups before the treatment and after 12 weeks' treatment.

After 12 weeks' treatment, the patients in the two groups have been improved differently in comparison with those before the treatment. However, the cure rate, the excellence rate and total effective rate of the observation group are superior to those of the control group, thus their difference shows statistical significance.

After 12 weeks, the Tai Chi exercise shows an obvious curative effect on the patients with lumbar muscle strain but the curative effect is more remarkable if it is combined with auricular plaster therapy.

The study is published by International journal of clinical & experimental medicine.
