Abstract: Objective To explore the clinical effect of Qigong exercise on patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Methods 41 patients with PD were randomly divided into two groups: the control group (n = 23) and the control group (n = 18). The 2 groups were given basic medical treatment of Neurology, Health Qigong group patients in the control group on the basis of the treatment of 10 weeks of Qigong intervention, a week 5 times, each time 60 min. Two groups of patients before and after intervention were gugt time (TUG), single leg standing with eyes closed test, using the unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale III (UPDRS- III), Hoehn-Yahr (H-Y) score, Beck Anxiety Scale (BAI) assessment of motor function and mood changes. Results after 10 weeks of exercise, H-Y score, UPDRS- score and BAI score were lower than those before treatment (P < < < < < < < < < < < < > > > > > > > > > > > >, and there was no significant difference between the control group and the control group (P > 0.05) (P > 0.01). The test time of TUG test in the qigong group was lower than that before treatment (P<0.05) at fifth weeks and tenth weeks (), and the test time on both sides of the eyes was longer than that before treatment (P<0.05) at the end of the fifth week and the third week. Conclusion Health Qigong exercise can improve the motor function of patients with mild to moderate PD, especially the balance ability of patients, and also can alleviate the anxiety of patients.

ABSTRACT: Objective To investigate the clinical effects of Health Qigong in patients with Parkinson s disease (PD) Methods PD patients were. Forty-one randomly divided into the Qigong group (23 cases) and the control group (18 cases). Regular medications were applied in both groups. Compared with the control group, 10-week Health Qigong was conducted in the Qigong group, 5 times per week for 60 minutes each time. The timed "up and go" (TUG), one-legged blind balance test were performed before, during and, after the intervention. The physical coordination and mood test were performed by the Unified PD Rating Scale (UPDRS), Hoehn-Yahr stage and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI Results After 10 weeks). Of Health Qigong exercises, PA Tients in the Qigong group showed significant trend of reduction in the H-Y stage, UPDRS- and BAI III (P < 0.05, P < 0.01), but the control group was not obvious (P > 0.05). By observing the data changes before and after the treatment in the Qigong group, the TUG reduced gradually in the fifth and tenth weeks, and the difference was significant (P<0.05) The blind balance test. One-legged time prolonged in the fifth and tenth weeks (P<0.05) Conclusions Qigong exercises can. Health improve the body functions of patients with mild and moderate PD, especially in the terms of balance. It might also relieve the anxiety to some degree. Health Qigong is worth promoting.

Parkinson's disease (Parkinson disease, PD) is a degenerative disorder of the nigrostriatal pathway, which is common in the elderly [1]. In the PD movement complications, the movement fluctuation appears early, and often accompanies the posture gait abnormality, causes the patient to have the corresponding psychology and the mood barrier [2-3]. Increasing the dose of drugs may increase the risk of motor complications [4]. In recent years, many studies have shown that Taijiquan can not only improve the postural balance of patients with PD, but also has the effect of reducing the level of anxiety in patients with [2-3,5]. But there is less research on the role of [5] in the patients with PD, which is similar to the other rehabilitation exercise mode of taijiquan. In this study, the effects of exercise on PD patients were observed to explore the effects of exercise on the improvement of exercise symptoms, mental health and quality of life.
1 objects and methods
1.1 consecutive patients with 2015-07 - 2015-10 Space Center Hospital Department of neurology outpatient PD patients were randomly divided into two groups: the control group, each group of 26 cases of Health Qigong group (n = 52). All patients meet the diagnostic criteria of [6] primary PD PD British Association think tank developed, and H-Y classification in 1~3. The exclusion or exclusion criteria: serious system disease; obvious cognitive dysfunction, they could not complete; during treatment as a result of illness need to increase the dose of medicine amount > 120% and above; with benign and malignant tumor. 11 cases were excluded from the final analysis, and a total of 41 patients were included in the statistical analysis, including the control group (n = 18) and the healthy Qigong group (n = 23). Among the 41 PD patients, 15 cases were male, 26 were female, the average age (57.1 + 7) years; the average duration (4.1 + 1) years; modified H-Y staging score (2.6 + 0.4); UPDRS- score (34.1 + 7.5); BAI score (45.5 + 8.2), the incidence of anxiety 58.5%. There was no significant difference between the two groups in gender composition, age of onset, course of disease, education level, UPDRS- III, modified H-Y staging (P > 0.05).
