Yoga, Tai Chi and acupuncture help in reducing chronic pain

Posted On: May 21, 2011

Washington, May 20 (ANI): A research has indicated that meditative exercise forms such as yoga, Tai Chi, and ancient health practices such as acupuncture helps in reducing chronic pain.

Other complementary and alternative health practices including meditation and relaxation techniques, manual therapies such as massage and spinal manipulation also show promise for contributing to the management of pain.

"Much of health care involves helping people find solutions for tough problems like pain. I think all physicians are well aware of how difficult it is to manage chronic pain patients," said Josephine Briggs, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health.

"For example, with back pain we see that large numbers of patients are turning to these approaches with the hope of decreasing discomfort, improving function and quality-of-life, and minimizing side effects of pharmacologic treatments," added Briggs.

The research was presented at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Pain Society. (ANI)
