dysfunctions affect various domains, especially mental processing speed, attention, memory, and executive function ( Harada, Natelson, & Triebel, 2013 ). Aging-related phenotypic expressions include, among others, gait dysfunction and mobility limitations ( Blackwood, Shubert, Forgarty, & Chase, 2016 ). These

( Kortebein et al., 2008 ; Puthucheary et al., 2013 ). Without a preventive intervention, hospital-associated deconditioning and disability has the potential to precipitate short- and long-term consequences including loss of mobility, independence, and quality of life. Additional negative outcomes may

In this paper, we review experimental evidence for the effectiveness of the Feldenkrais method (FM) in changing performance in the areas of general function, mobility, and balance, as well as for pain management. We primarily focus on results from randomized-control-trial (RCT) studies but also

The FMS was developed to assess functional movement insufficiencies and asymmetries in a healthy population. 1 – 3 Insufficiencies may cause the individual to alter a task to maintain performance, which, over time, can load the

The essence of embodied relief from pain offered by exercise was considered in light of six themes: enjoying exercise experiences, social engagement, gratitude, learned latitudes, maintaining mobility, and aging (Figure  1 ).
