Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson's: How Pilates Can Help With These Neurological Diseases by Sandy Greiner, PMA-CPT

Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson's: How Pilates Can Help With These Neurological Diseases

People with neurologic conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease can improve quality of life with Pilates apparatus training. Pilates improves core strength and pelvic stabilization done in a mindful way. This helps people with neurologic conditions to improve balance and prevent falls, which is a common and potentially lethal risk.

Dr. Allen Bowling, professor of neurology at the University of Colorado and author of "Optimal Health With Multiple Sclerosis," states that Pilates can "rewire the brain for confidence and stability." In a study published in the journal NeuroRehabilitation in 2014, people with MS who trained in Pilates for eight weeks saw improvements in balance, mobility and muscle strength in their arms and legs.

Thanks for sharing this important information, Sandy Greiner, PMA-CPT . A friend of mine's grandma had Parkinson's disease. It's such a scary diagnosis.

My husband is 80 years and has been suffering from PD for the past 15 years. Lately he started hallucinating and I didn't know how to handle the situation. He cannot sleep and tried to find and catch the imaginary people who he thinks are real. he was taken Entacapone with Levodopa, Carbidopa, and Pramipexole and started physical therapy to strengthen muscles. nothing was really working to help his condition.I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on parkinson’s herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, his symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the Parkinsons disease natural herbal formula.i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my husband is now active, he can now go about daily exercise!! his symptoms so much reduced that now I hardly notice them.Visit there website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email Info@ healthherbalclinic. net
