It might seem that with the popularity of newer exercise trends, such as boot camp, CrossFit, spinning, pole dancing, and even more choices, that people are forgetting the benefits of pilates. The reality is that pilates is still going strong and even growing in popularity because it is beneficial for all ages and for everything from injury rehabilitation to fibromyalgia.
It isn’t known what causes fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) with its chronic pain and widespread tenderness, aches, pains, fatigue, stiffness, and other symptoms. It is known, however, that sedentary lifestyles and improper posture can perpetuate trigger points. It is also common to experience what is termed “fibro fog,” which is a disconnected from the body type feeling. If you are seeking improvement for these and other FMS symptoms, you could enjoy many benefits of pilates.
Working with a comprehensively trained pilates instructor who will tailor your pilates program is key to getting the best results. For example, pilates exercises that work to improve posture, increase circulation, increase muscle relaxation, oxygenate blood, and build core strength and stability can go a long way to providing some FMS symptom relief.
