Healthy joints are vital to pain free movement and Qigong exercises can help heal and prevent arthritis. Dr. Yang presents numerous Qigong exercises, updated theory and expanded instruction. Young or old, sedentary or athletic; it is likely that one out of seven of us will be afflicted with arthritis in our lifetime. Since healthy joints are key to pain free movement, rejuvenating them is vital to well-being. Although Western Medicine has made great progress in treating arthritis, it has limited success in actually healing it; rather focusing more on relieving pain and inflammation. Chinese Medicine, over the last four thousand years, has developed many of its own methods to treat arthritis, including Qigong exercises, acupuncture, massage, and herbal treatments. By doing Qigong exercises, you can effectively treat many types of arthritis and rebuild the strength of your joints, which is the root of complete healing. This book introduces Qigong exercises that have been successfully used in China to treat arthritis. It begins with general concepts of Qigong, a summary of arthritis according to both Western and Eastern medicine, an explanation of how Qigong treats arthritis, and finally gentle Qigong exercises you can use to help prevent, treat and heal arthritis.
