Using Qi flow in Taiji effecting structural change in feetand reduced pain: a case report

In the article, the author reports on a case study of chronic pain problems caused by her own foot deformity. The author began using Taiji, Chen style Chan Si Gong (Reeling Silk), and Zhan Zhuang (standing meditation) to relieve chronic pain since 1986. After more than two years of Qigong training, the structure of the author's foot changed from the previous deformity to normal foot shape. These changes enabled the author to walk normally and to be free from persistent chronic pain. The article discussed the methods of using Qi currents and other issues that need to be paid attention to when practicing Tai chi, such as how to adjust one's mental focus and maintain a state of relaxation to "mindful". Tai chi involves a number of internal "micro-adjusting" about how these techniques relax and strengthen muscles to reduce chronic pain. The report and discussion on the treatment principle of Qigong can provide new strategies for the treatment of chronic pain.
