Pilates for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

Why

 

Pilates?

Pilates has a strong  emphasis on the balance of muscle length and strength. This may provide a therapeutic level of joint stability without increasing muscle tension or spasm. 

The focus on the mind body connection can help lead to physiological changes such as improved joint proprioception and reduced fear with movement and exercise.

The mindful practice can help with anxiety and depression that is common in patients with chronic pain.
