Pilates and sports. Part III

How to correct guilty movements

Movement patterns need to be repeated in a right way until they become automatic. Unfortunately, the unbalances that a person has been gradually dragging through a life-time can not be inverted at night.

Pilates works rebalancing the body, altering the way you use your muscles to produce the movements. It changes the way you use your body, the way you move and restores the natural and normal movement of your body.

Pilates works the consolidation of the stabilizing and guilty muscles that lean upon the dorsal spine. The transversal abdominus is the deepest of the abdominal muscles, getting wrapped in a horizontal way around the trunk, acting as a corsé when it gets hooked onto. Other muscles are important for providing good trunk stability, the muscles of the back and pelvic bottom. This creates the solid cylinder around the dorsal central spine, helping the prevention, helping to prevent the strength that is applied over the vertebrae, ligaments and discs.

Pilates’ exercises are peaceful, progressive and have to be realized slowly for a goof position alignment. Because of this, these controlled movements are pretty unlikely to suffer a re-injury.
