The Health Benefits of Pilates for Seniors

Seniors may find themselves in a bit of a Catch-22. They need physical exercise for a healthier life, but more rigorous of workouts may be too much for them. Their joints and muscles may be too sore or their energy levels may be too low. However, a stagnant lifestyle has the potential to add to health problems such as muscle weakness, weight gain, and severe body aches. Luckily, Pilates offers a new alternative.

Pilates focuses on light and gentle exercises that are as much a mental exercise as they are physical. The point is to increase flexibility as opposed to agility or extreme strength training.

This type of workout is beneficial even for those who are not in the best of shape thanks to such conditions as arthritis, which can cause painful inflammation to joints, making movement very painful. For those with this disease, physical activity may seem impossible thanks to their pre-existing pain. However, easy workouts like those that Pilates offer could be the answer.

Pilates has been known to improve muscle strength and increase a range of motion, adding to joint health. For those with arthritis, it can be one of the least painful ways to add regular physical activity into their lives. It's important to keep to the plan and integrate it into a daily schedule. This way, even light activity will hand long-term benefits.

When adding a new exercise into your or your loved one's daily life, consult a medical professional to discuss if it's safe.
