I’m astounded to read in this article from the Times that:
Research by Bupa suggests that 45 per cent of British adults suffered back pain in the past year, and that 25 per cent suffered knee pain.
The article’s talking about an expensive new course of treatment, involving purchase of far-from-cheap special shoes, that will solve these problems.
I used to have back and knee pain. Taijiquan and yiquan sorted them out, and gave many other benefits besides – at a much lower cost.
I guess if I can get to the point of becoming a teacher of taiji, there’s a huge market out there….
