Pilates helps improve balance and flexibility: When you have osteoporosis, your balance and flexibility may be compromised. Pilates is a low-impact exercise that can help improve your balance and range of motion.
Pilates helps strengthen muscles : As we age our muscles tend to shrink in size and strength. Pilates is a great way to combat this because it focuses on small, targeted muscle groups. When these muscles are strong, they support the spine and keep us upright – which is especially important if you suffer from osteoporosis.
Pilates improves posture : Poor posture can aggravate back pain and cause problems with our bones and joints. Pilates helps correct poor posture by teaching you how to stand, sit, and move correctly.
Pilates helps increase bone density: One of the main benefits of Pilates is that it can help increase bone density. This is especially important for women with osteoporosis who are at a higher risk for fractures. Pilates increases bone density by working the muscles that support our bones – such as our hips, spine, and pelvis.
Pilates helps decrease pain: Pain is one of the most common symptoms associated with osteoporosis. Pilates can help to decrease pain by strengthening the muscles around painful joints and improving flexibility.
Pilates reduces the risk of falling: Falling is a major risk factor for women with osteoporosis. Pilates helps to improve balance and coordination, which can help reduce the risk of falling.
Pilates helps improve circulation : Poor circulation can lead to pain, swelling, and fatigue. Pilates helps improve circulation by getting your heart rate up and improving blood flow throughout the body.
Pilates is great for stress relief: Stress can have a negative impact on our health so it’s important to find ways to reduce stress in our lives. Pilates is a great way to do just that! It’s a challenging workout but also very relaxing.
