Pilates exercises for multiple sclerosis
Wed,Sep 28, 2016 at 02:50PM by Carla Mullins
The exercise of the week has a focus on helping improve range of motion in the ankle and hip, generally known as dorsiflexion. It uses the traditional pilates apparatus known as a Wunda Chair. The exercise was modified for a pilates client with multiple sclerosis.
For whom does the exercise apply?
The exercise modification can be useful for people with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, affected by drop foot. However, it is also great for runners and can be further modified for people who have recently had a hip replacement and therefore need to minimise the amount of flexion in the affected hip.
We will be bringing the pilates for multiple sclerosis course to Australia in 2017, great for those of you interested in going deeper into the issues faced by people with neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis.
