THERAPEUTIC PILATES

We use the Pilates method, suitable for back problems in the main, as part of totally personalised attention, in small groups, in order to correct and prevent errors. The main objectives of this methodology are based on reinforcing the deep abdominal muscles in order to stabilise the spine, increase of postural control, strength, coordination and flexibility, combined with respiratory work.

HYPOPRESSIVE ABDOMINAL EXERCISES

Weakness in the abdominal cavity can mainly trigger spine and pelvic floor pathologies. This methodology tries to strengthen the deep abdominal muscles, as well as work on the external muscles, using postural and respiratory exercises.

The main objective of this work is to reduce pressure inside the abdomen, protecting the internal organs and activating the muscles of the pelvic floor.

The principle benefits are toning of the abdominal muscles, reduction of the perimeter of the waist, improvement in posture, prevention of hernias, prevention of urinary incontinence, lumbar-pelvic protection, reducing the tensions of the back muscular chain and increasing the tone of the abdominal girdle. On a sports level, this type of exercise has been seen to increase efficiency of movement and of explosive force and improve respiratory capacity.
