Effects of Tai Chi Chuan in Patients After Recent Acute Myocardial Infarction
Effects of Tai Chi Chuan on Blood Pressure, Respiratory Muscle Strength and Functional Capacity in Patients After Recent Acute Myocardial Infarction: a Randomized Clinical Trial

This is a randomized Clinical Trial to assess the effects of Tai Chi Chuan on blood pressure, respiratory muscle strength and functional capacity in patients after recent acute myocardial infarction.

Not Provided
Interventional
Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Acute Myocardial Infarction
  • Other: Intervention group -Tai Chi Chuan exercise
    patients in this group held three weekly classes of 60 minutes during 12 weeks of Tai Chi Chuan, Yang style. The exercises will be mild to moderate (HR 60 to 75% of HR Max). Slow movements combined with exercises and maintained using your own body weight.
  • Other: Control group -stretching exercise
    patients in this group held weekly classes of two stretching for 12 weeks.
  • Active Comparator: stretching exercise
    Intervention: Other: Control group -stretching exercise
  • Experimental: Tai Chi Chuan exercise
    Intervention: Other: Intervention group -Tai Chi Chuan exercise
