Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Osteoarthritis (OA)

RA is a systemic autoimmune disease which is characterized by inflammation of the synovial membrane lining the joint, which can cause stiffness, swelling and pain. It can lead to loss of range of motion and dysfunction.

Pilates can help individuals with OA and RA reduce symptoms and can improve general health and vitality. At Soulution Pilates a Stott Pilates program can increase range of motion and significantly strengthen the joints, without causing aggravation. A Stott Pilates program is carefully devised to increase strength and flexibility to the muscles surrounding the joints, whilst keeping the bones and cartilage healthy. A program is gradually progressed to increase endurance and stamina, and daily function and activities will become easier.
