      LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE (ALS)

            A leading internet "Tai Chi Medical Research Site !"    



LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE. Tai Chi is recommended by many support groups of neuromuscular diseases. Check with your doctor to discuss introducing Tai Chi as an adjunct to your therapy.


Over the years, other types of exercises also have come into vogue that may be beneficial for those with ALS. Yoga, Pilates and tai chi are all low-impact activities that involve movement of the entire body and often include a mental component that can be meditative or stress relieving.

But remember that low-impact doesn’t mean low-intensity. Use caution to avoid fatigue and injury, and if you’re in a class, make the instructor aware of your medical condition before starting.

As with any exercise program, modification may be necessary over time.
