MOTM #150: Pilates for Neurological Conditions with Meghann Koppele Duffy

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Just because your client has a neurological condition does not not mean that they no longer require the same basic movement functionality as everyone else.

Join me for an eye-opening episode, way outside of my treatment wheelhouse, as I discuss this very concept with Meghann Koppele Duffy, and she gives us some insight to the approach she's been using for over 19 years with incredible results.

Do you actually know what Pilates is? Do you have any idea how it could be used to help people with neurological conditions? Is there more than we can be doing for folks with Parkinson's? All the answers and way more coming your way in the full episode.
