Tai Chi for Parkinson's disease in Wake Forest, NC
tai-chi.jpg

Tai Chi combines combine slow, deliberate movements, medication and breathing exercises. The low-impact moving meditations include standing and balancing. Although qi gong and tai chi are excellent fitness activities for beginners and people with health conditions, elite athletes also benefit from doing the slow movements, because everyone needs better balance and muscle control.

Considering the owners of PhysioFit of NC are both physical therapists who have treated patients with Parkinson’s disease over the years, we have found these deliberate, large moving, balance and strength exercises are phenomenal way to improve motor function and balance.

Not only do we see changes in our patients, this was found in a 2014 study by Yang et al. This study is a meta-analysis and systematic review of the use of Tai Chi for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. For those who do not know research quality, this type of study is the HIGHEST level of evidence that is available to healthcare professionals in order to provide the most evidence-based approach to a medical condition.

If you or a loved one has Parkinson’s disease and looking for a consistent, safe, and complementary exercise program to your medications, we offer Tai Chi at PhysioFit of North Carolina.

ITB Tightness
ITB.jpg

💪🏻Who can name this muscle in orange?! Hint: It’s involved if you’re having #itbandsyndrome tightness. 🏃‍♀️Hint #2 - it’s not a Starbucks drink! 😁

Tightness in your ITB can be treated by foam rolling through it, but there is usually a REASON it is tight!

As you can see from the picture above, there are direct connections from the IT Band (in orange) to the pelvis and directly across from typically weaker muscles in the hips.

If you’re constantly dealing with tightness in your IT Band, let us help not only get immediate relief, but figure out WHY it is always tight.

We are here as your Musculoskeletal Health Experts and our goal is to teach you how to treat yourself.
