1. The effects of Mat Pilates and Reformer Pilates in patients with Multiple Sclerosis: A randomized controlled study. (Abstract)

The effects of Mat Pilates and Reformer Pilates in patients with Multiple Sclerosis: A randomized controlled study. Pilates is an exercise method which increases strength and endurance of core muscles and improves flexibility, dynamic postural control and balance.To analyze and compare the effects of Mat and Reformer Pilates methods in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).Thirty-eight patients with MS were included in the study. Participants were randomly divided into 3 groups as Mat Pilates (...) , Reformer Pilates and control groups. The subjects in the Pilates groups did Mat or Reformer Pilates for 8 weeks, 2 days a week. The control group did breathing and relaxation exercises at home. Balance, functional mobility, core stability, fatigue severity and quality of life were evaluated.Balance, functional mobility, core stability, fatigue severity and quality of life improved after Pilates in Mat and Reformer Pilates groups (p < 0.05). On the other hand, we could not find any changing

5. Pilates training improves 5-km run performance by changing metabolic cost and muscle activity in trained runners. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pilates training improves 5-km run performance by changing metabolic cost and muscle activity in trained runners. Strength training improves distance running economy and performance. This finding is based predominantly on maximal and explosive strength programmes applied to locomotor muscles, particularly on the lower limbs. It is not certain whether a minimization of metabolic cost (Cmet) and an improvement in running performance is feasible with strength training of the postural and trunk (...) muscles.Using kinematic, neuromuscular and metabolic measurements of running at two different speeds before and after a 12-week Pilates training programme, we tested the hypothesis that core training might improve the running Cmet and performance of trained runners. Thirty-two individuals were randomly assigned to the control group (CG, n = 16) or the Pilates group (PG, n = 16).Confirming our hypothesis, a significant improvement (p<0.05) was observed for running performance in the PG (pre: 25.65±0.4 min

7. Pilates: new evidence on help for low back pain

Pilates: new evidence on help for low back pain Pilates: new evidence on help for low back pain - Evidently Cochrane Search and hit Go By July 24, 2015 // Fresh from a Pilates class, I’ve looked at the new Cochrane evidence on Pilates for low back pain and asked Chartered Physiotherapist and Pilates teacher Jane Callaway to explain more about Pilates and to share her thoughts on the evidence. Back pain is a very common cause of disability and absence from work I went to my first Pilates class (...) from our sideways/upside down positions. I had more excuse than most for allowing my mind to wander off onto plans for the weekend, whether I might be feeling a bit hungry and how near we might be to the bit at the end where you’re allowed to just lie there (I think I did that several times before we were supposed to). It was good timing, anyway, as I’d been looking at new research on Pilates. I’m lucky not to be one of the many who suffer from non-specific low back pain (LBP), a major cause

13. Effectiveness of the Pilates method versus aerobic exercises in the treatment of older adults with chronic low back pain: a randomized controlled trial protocol. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Effectiveness of the Pilates method versus aerobic exercises in the treatment of older adults with chronic low back pain: a randomized controlled trial protocol. Chronic low back pain is potentially disabling for older adults, and exercise is considered the best treatment. The Pilates method and aerobic exercises have been proven to be effective in pain and function improvement in patients with low back pain, but evidence in the treatment of older adults with low back pain is scarce. Therefore (...) , the objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the Pilates method compared to aerobic exercises in the treatment of older adults with chronic nonspecific low back pain.This is a randomized controlled trial with blinded assessor, to be held in a physical therapy clinic in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Mat Pilates and aquatic aerobic exercises for women with fibromyalgia: a protocol for a randomised controlled blind study. Physical exercises have been recommended to improve the overall well-being of patients with fibromyalgia, with the main objective of repairing the effects of lack of physical conditioning and of improving the symptoms, especially pain and fatigue.
