Can Pilates help with MS - get started here
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.

The main symptoms include:

difficulty walking
vision problems, such as blurred vision
problems controlling the bladder
numbness or tingling in different parts of the body
muscle stiffness and spasms
problems with balance and coordination
problems with thinking, learning and planning
Depending on the type of MS you have, your symptoms may come and go in phases or get steadily worse over time (progress).

What causes multiple sclerosis?

Autoimmune condition. This is when something goes wrong with the immune system and it mistakenly attacks the brain or spinal cord of the nervous system.
In MS, the immune system attacks the layer that surrounds and protects the nerves called the myelin sheath.
This damages and scars the sheath, and potentially the underlying nerves, meaning that messages travelling along the nerves become slowed or disrupted.
Pilates can help you to manage your MS.
Best when you practice often and over a longer period of time. Even doing little or few exercises regularly can make you feel better.
Some symptoms it can help you with are foot-drop, posture, balance, bladder, fatigue and memory.
