35 years ago no treatment was available to prevent advancing incapacitation. My article is a personal account discussing techniques using Taiji, Chan Si Gong (Reeling Silk), and Zhan Zhuang (standing meditation), thought-processes, methods of practice and the determination needed to enable structural changes to my foot deformities resulting in normal foot shape, and subsequently relief of intense chronic pain.
The report and discussion on the treatment principle of Qigong may provide new insights or strategies for the treatment of chronic or persistent pain.
The paper has just been published in the current issue of Life Research, a peer-reviewed scientific journal. You can download the pdf file from the link:
