Tai Chi Successfully Treats Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms, Study Concludes

According to a 2005 study, a new application of an age old form of martial arts known as Tai Chi has been found to be an effective treatment for the effects of peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy is a systematic degenerative condition that affects the peripheral nervous system – the part of the body which transmits signals from the brain and spinal cord to all other parts of the body.

The Louisiana State University’s department of Kinesiology conducted the study which was led LSU professor of kinesiology, Li Li. Initially, the study’s duration was supposed be a few months, but it has persisted to date because of the effectiveness of the treatment.

“People wouldn’t come if it wasn’t doing something,” said Li. “I mean, some of these people travel 50 to 100 miles round trip just to make it to our classes. For many of them, if they couldn’t come to our sessions, which are offered free of charge, they couldn’t afford to go anywhere else.”

Roughly 75 participants make up the group of participants in the study but as more people begin to learn about the effectiveness of Tai Chi on the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy spreads, the waiting list to join the group becomes larger & larger.

The Baton Rouge area alone contains 150 individuals waiting to join the study.

Marian King, who has been a participant in the group for the past nine months says “I have really been helped by the program. My legs felt like they had bands around them and my feet would burn constantly.” “Since I’ve been here, I’ve only had two episodes of severe burning and the bands, where as it was on a daily basis before.”

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

Tai chi is also known as “meditation in motion,” which is used for meditation and complete relaxation. Practitioners recommend it to enhance one’s mental and physical health. This traditional Chinese practice is defined by slow, flowing movements that emphasize and release energy forces. When this energy becomes blocked, one becomes ill.

I highly recommend Tai Chi as a therapeutic treatment. Aside from increasing circulation, immunity, mental alertness, strength and balance, it has a calming effect on the mind and body.

While no known cure for peripheral neuropathy exists, this certainly is a good start in terms of treatment.
