Tai Chi for Arthritis

Health and exercise experts advise that an exercise program for people with arthritis should incorporate exercises that improve muscular strength, flexibility, and fitness. ~ Muscle strength is important for supporting and protecting joints, which will reduce pain. ~ Flexibility exercises also help to reduce pain and stiffness, enabling you to move easier. ~ Stamina or fitness is important for overall health and proper function of your heart, lungs, and muscles. ~ Tai Chi is proven to improve all of these components.
