The University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Department will be conducting Effects of Meditative Movements for Persons with Chronic Health Conditions research study from June to Sept, 2016.
Chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis—are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.
The prevention and management of chronic health conditions is a major challenge for the current health care system. There is growing evidence that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) have beneficial effects for managing the many symptoms of chronic health conditions. Use of CAM to improve health and well-being has increased over the years (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). American adults are most likely to use CAM for problems such as stress, fatigue, and pain.
The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of Meditative Movements on blood pressure, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and quality of life for persons with chronic health conditions.
