New York, Feb 12 (IANS) Practicing Tai Chi at a young age can protect you from developing chronic low back pain in adulthood, a new study suggests.

"Many of us have become familiar with pictures of large groups of older people in China or Hong Kong practicing T'ai Chi together. Thie study suggests that older adults here in the United States may similarly find such practices acceptable and useful, " said John Weeks from JACM journal in the US.  Tai Chi has been shown effective for improving chronic back pain yet with little attention to older adults.
