Mindfulness Training Reduces Stress of Rheumatic Disease


A randomized pilot study has shown that a mindfulness-based group therapy intervention produced significant and durable relief for patients with inflammatory rheumatoid joint diseases…Eric L. Matteson, MD, chair of rheumatology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, reviewed the study for Medscape Medical News. "I did find this interesting and convincing. It is a challenge to implement some of the techniques in clinical practice. Having group therapy sessions that are led by skilled nurses and MDs can be a useful approach to the implementation of this kind of strategy," he said.
