What exactly is the practice of qigong and how can it help someone like me who has pain in the back all the time?

Qigong, pronounced chee gung, is an ancient Chinese practice of treating and healing, and preventative medicine. There are several categories of qigong, only one of which is to help heal chronic pain. Someone who practices qigong learns how to use breathing techniques and body movements, as well as meditation, to help the body become stronger and heal itself.

It is believed that if you practice qigong, you will be able to help relieve your pain.
