Resumen

Introduction: Previous systematic reviews of the literature on the effects of Tai Chi Chuan(TCC)on balance have focussed either on determining the quality of the research design or have provided just a general description of the studies.To the best of our knowledge none have approached this topic by conducting an analysis from the point of view of the factors which affect balance.It is important to present this perspective as it will help to guide future research in this field. Methodology: Seven electronic data bases were searched for publications dated between 1996 and 2012.The inclusion criteria were;randomized controlled trials(RCT)written in English. Results: From a total of 397 articles identified, 27 randomized controlled trials were eligible for the analysis. Conclusions: Studies reviewed appear to confirm that TCC improves static and dynamic balance and in the functional factors which affect balance in persons of over 55 years of age.Only one study was identified on people affected with problems with the vestibular system. No studies on the influence of TCC on improvement in balance in individuals suffering from deteriorated brain function were identified.
