Tai chi for primary prevention of cardiovascular disease

West MidlandsCardiovascular
Start Date: 9 Apr 2014

Project summary

There are currently no long-term trials examining tai chi for the primary prevention of CVD. Due to the limited evidence available currently no conclusions can be drawn as to the effectiveness of tai chi on CVD risk factors. There was some suggestion of beneficial effects of tai chi on CVD risk factors but this was not consistent across all studies.
