Tai Chi for Arthritis
TAI CHI FOR ARTHRITIS
August 3. - September 21
Experts agree that suitable exercise for people with arthritis should incorporate components that can improve muscular strength, flexibility, and fitness. Increased muscular strength supports and protects joints, which will reduce pain. Flexibility exercises also help to reduce pain and stiffness, thus improving mobility. Stamina or fitness is important for overall health and proper function of your heart, lungs and muscles.
Tai Chi for Arthritis helps people with arthritis to improve all these and more. It improves balance both mentally and physically thus significantly reduces the rate of fall of the older adults. Additional benefits include improving relaxation, vitality, posture, and immunity.
