What is Tai Chi for Arthritis and Falls Prevention?
Developed by Dr. Paul Lam at the Tai Chi for Health Institute (TCHI), the program utilizes Tai Chi’s Sun style for its ability to improve relaxation, balance and its ease of use for older adults. The movements are taught to both left and right sides and with turns to move forward and backward to improve mobility and offer a variety of combinations.
Tai Chi for Arthritis is led by a TCHI Board certified instructor, with each session including the following: – – Warm-up and cool-down exercises
– One or two movements per lesson, progressively leading to completing the six basic core movements and six advanced extension movements
– Breathing techniques
– Tai Chi principles including those relating to improving physical and mental balance
Movements are performed at a higher stance to make it easier for older participants and those with arthritis. Movements can be modified to accommodate mobility issues for any participant and can be done seated as a starting exercise.
Tai Chi for Arthritis has been shown to:
– Improve balance
– Increase muscular strength
– Improve mobility
– Increase flexibility
– Improve psychological health
– Decrease pain / Prevent falls
The target audience is adults with or without arthritis, rheumatic diseases or related musculoskeletal conditions. The program is appropriate for people with mild, moderate and severe joint involvement and back pain. It is also appropriate for adults without arthritis who have a higher risk of falling.

HOW INCREDIWEAR WORKS
Since 2009, Incrediwear has strived to revolutionize the Health & Fitness Industry with products that increase circulation to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, optimize performance, and accelerate recovery. Unlike compression products, Incrediwear products do not need to compress to work. Instead, our technology incorporates semiconductor elements within our fabric, which when stimulated by body heat, release negative ions. The negative ions activate molecular vibrations that increase blood flow and speed. Increasing circulation helps bring more oxygen and nutrients to the target area, which optimizes the body’s natural healing process and accelerates recovery. Benefits of Increased Blood Circulation Include:
- Accelerated Recovery
- Reduced Swelling
- Optimized Performance
- Reduced Fatigue
Recovery is an essential component to any athlete or active individual’s success. Recovery is becoming increasingly recognized as one of the most important elements to performance. Incrediwear’s anti-inflammatory recovery wear optimizes recovery with a different approach. Our recovery products can be worn 24/7 and have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow to optimize the body’s natural healing process. By optimizing your body’s ability to recover throughout the night and day, rate of recovery from workout or injury is accelerated significantly.Read More
