pilates good for you

Parkinson's disease is progressive disease that impairs muscles and movement. There are medications that ease the symptoms.

Pilates could also improve your body stiffness,rigidity caused by the disease.

Pilates is a series of controlled movements in which the muscles are moved inch by inch. The small movements could make a big difference for people with Parkinson's disease.
There are a growing number of Parkinson's patients who are regularly doing Pilates to improve symptoms of the disease such as tremors, slowness of movement, poor balance and rigidity. Pilates exercises do not strain the body, so it works well for people who don't exercise at all.
I take part pilate when I was diagnosed at an early stage of Parkinson’s. I really work on me as it does not strain the body. It works on breathing and do wonder on your core muscles movement besides pilate equipments.
