Lynne Matallana, President and Editor-in-Chief of the National Fibromyalgia Association, shares her experience with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) and the role of exercise as a management tool. The disabling and varying levels of pain and fatigue associated with FMS are major symptoms. However, one of the most frustrating aspects of this condition is the physical debilitation causing functional limitations that affect quality of life. FMS patients will benefit from the gentle exercise program designed by Mary Ann Wilson, RN to improve posture, breathing and range of motion. Both seated and standing versions of exercises are demonstrated by Ms. Wilson and Lori McCormick, PT. This workout uses a 9-12 inch ball as a fitness tool -- container.

In spite of what Christilini says here, all the exercises can be done without any equipment and one of the instructors does demonstrate how that is done. The description on the DVD case suggests a 9-12 inch ball can be used as a fitness tool. A toy ball would be fine. A medicine ball would certainly not be appropriate in these exercises for someone with fibromyalgia. I had fun!

The problem I had with this item is that it requires the participant to use fitness or medicine balls, neither of which are in my possession. I have had better success with other dvd's, such as Bedtop Yoga and the Mayo Clinic Fibromyalgia dvd.
