Normal? Not Normal?
It is common to refrain from exercise when suffering from injuries or dealing with neurological pain. Especially when you are suffering from the chronic pain of Fibromyalgia; characterized by widespread musculoskeletal aches, pain, stiffness, soft tissue tenderness, general fatigue and sleep disturbances. Fibromyalgia is often overlooked because it is hard to diagnose and leaves its subjects feeling helpless! It might feel counter intuitive, but exercise and using the body often helps sufferers to move more freely with diminishing aches and pains.
How Pilates could help pain caused by Fibromyalgia?
Exercises is important when looking to maintain and improve pain thresholds, decrease the use of medications, and improve daily quality of life. The gentle stretching found in Pilates coupled with subtle contractions of the muscle can create a sense of balance, and strengthen the body without flare ups of pain. Injuries often beget injuries, and Pilates emphasis on spinal flexibility, proper breathing techniques and sense of self awareness reinforces a stronger relationship, and encourages the body to take on new physical challenges.
The springs found on the Pilates Gratz Equipment massage the lymphatic system, and provide facial tissue release which could also help suffers of Fibromyalgia. The many benefits of Pilates for Fibromyalgia can probably not be pinned to one or two principles. So, maybe stars are just like us! Be like the Queen of transformation!
