Lady Gaga uses pilates to help with her fibromyalgia - image credit at bottom of page
Lady Gaga is one of the many sufferers of the debilitating condition fibromyalgia ... this is a condition that attacks the nerve endings and joints and can cause serious pain, confusion and a burning sensation in the skin (nasty I know). Some estimates suggest nearly 1 in 20 people may be affected by fibromyalgia to some degree.
People suffering from fibromyalgia often fear that their pain will worsen with exercise. Research, however, has suggested that if the exercise is performed correctly, low impact aerobic exercise can increase their current pain threshold.
Pilates is therefore a great option for those who suffer with fibromyalgia.
To help stay in shape and manage her hectic lifestyle Lady Gaga performs a mixture of personal training sessions and pilates workouts with her trainer and has thanked her trainer for being her health rock. Gaga oo lala!
