Pilates consists of repeated movements that are meant to stretch and strengthen the body one action at a time in a certain order. For people with Parkinson's Disease, the complex motor sequencing as explained in the last sentence plays a therapeutic role in subsiding symptoms that result from Parkinson's. Furthermore, Pilates improves one's quality of life and can be beneficial for anyone including someone showing symptoms of Parkinson's. The main goal is to stay consistent in applying Pilates to one's daily routine and over time, through progress, will come results. Being persistent with incorporating Pilates, as well as repeated practice of motor training activities (sitting, standing, getting out of a car, walking) will undoubtedly benefit anyone, including individuals with Parkinson's Disease.
