Trial of Tai Chi Mind-Body Therapy for Fibromyalgia Now Recruiting at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston

www.ProHealth.com • November 19, 2007


The Department of Rheumatology at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston is recruiting subjects with Fibromyalgia for a study of the benefits of Tai Chi.

The purpose of the study is to obtain preliminary data on the effects of Tai Chi on musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep quality, psychological distress, physical performance, and health status in patients with Fibromyalgia.

The intervention will involve a 12-week Tai Chi program by comparison with a 12-week stretching and wellness-education program.

What is Tai Chi? As the trial organizers describe it: “Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese discipline with both physical and mental components that appears to benefit a variety of chronic conditions. The physical component provides exercise that is consistent with that recommended for FM (muscle conditioning and aerobic cardiovascular exercise), while the mental component has the potential to improve psychological well-being. These effects are especially pertinent for the treatment of individuals with FM.”

See the description of the trial (NCT00515008) at ClinicalTrials.gov http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00515008?order=5 for details, inclusion and exclusion criteria, and contact information.

Principal Investigator: Chenchen Wang, MD, MSc at cwang2@tufts-nemc.org (refer to ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT00515008 )
