How Tai Chi Makes You Stronger


In today's world of high-intensity fitness fads, one might wonder whether tai chi-characterized by its slow, deliberate movements-is a worthwhile workout. But the ancient Chinese practice has been linked to myriad health benefits, from improved immunity to lower blood pressure to reduced inflammation. Now, a new review of research says it may help older people avoid dangerous falls, as well.

Published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, the review analyzed results from 10 randomized controlled studies that looked at potential ways to reduce the risk of falling in adults who were older or disabled in some way. Each study compared tai chi with usual care or another intervention, like physical therapy or other forms of low-intensity exercise. Tai chi classes were an hour long, and people did them one to three times a week for 12-26 weeks.

After reviewing these studies, researchers from the University of JaƩn in Spain concluded that there was "high-quality evidence" that tai chi reduced the rate of falls by 43% within the first year of learning the practice-and 13% after the first year-compared to other interventions.
