Better Breathing: Using Pilates and Foundation Training to alleviate the respiratory effects of neurodegenerative disorders

Neuromuscular disorders can be a damaging bunch indeed. The category includes multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Huntington disease and other neurodegenerative disorders of the central nervous system.

Their symptoms often start quietly and insidiously, making it difficult to recognize whether a NMD has taken hold until extreme respiratory duress becomes apparent.
