Pilates 4 Special Conditions

Pilates 4 Special Conditions

Joseph Pilates grew up suffering from rickets, asthma and rheumatic fever and would have been considered today as someone with special conditions. He became obsessed with the frailties of the body and through his study of the musculature  was determined to overcome his own afflictions. And hence what we now call Pilates was born.

The amazing benefits of Pilates are universal.
Everything from Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Hypermobility, Sciatica, to less well known conditions such as Charcot Marie Tooth Disease will all benefit from movements which:

  • Are gentle; no impact on the bones and joints
  • Are precise and controlled
  • Strengthen muscles
  • Mobilize joints
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Improve posture
That is why Pilates is recommended  by health professionals as a program of exercise for so many special conditions.
