Pilates addresses every major symptom of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) through the use of exercises that facilitate correct movement behaviour. By allowing the patient to work in ways that minimise unwanted muscle activity, Pilates can also mitigate inefficient movement patterns and early fatigue.
Using the apparatus, springs and gravity are used to assist clients in successfully completing movements that he or she may not be able to do without assistance. The springs on Pilate equipment offer an opportunity to increase or decrease the difficulty of each exercise in a safe environment. Not many traditional types of exercise can offer this.
