WHAT IS THE AEQUUS SYSTEM AND THE AEQUUS PILATES?

The Aequus System has as its main pillar, high quality standardized postural education and hygiene, which is adapted to the needs and / or pathologies of the clients, which seeks correct ergonomics. We go from the pathological field to functional training, from the prevention, compensation, rehabilitation and recovery of musculoskeletal pathologies.

“The Aequus System returns the functionality to our body”

As a preventive element, avoid visits to specialists, as it involves a style of healthy life and as a system of rehabilitation, get the patient-client improvement to avoid relapses or pathologies derived from vices acquired by a previous pathology, (in the improvement of healthy life habits, should also include nutrition and personalized dietetics , and physiotherapists specialized in the functional understanding of the body).

WHY DO WE TALK ABOUT AEQUUS SYSTEM, OR AYQUUS STUDY PILATES, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, OR FUNCTIONAL TRAINING ...... AND NOT "PILATES"?

The “Pilates” is not a regulated training, nor does it have a quality standard, it works from an individual class, to groups of 50 people or more, “instructors” are trained watching a 5 minute internet video, to courses with more of 500 hours and years of training, we work from a perspective of health, or entertainment, to high-level training, with appropriate machinery and equipment, or without means to help, progress and modify exercises, without levels or differentiation of clients, up to centers with 7 levels and specialization of classes, with music and without music, with anatomical-pathological knowledge, or without any knowledge and a long etc. And all this is Pilates and nobody has the power to remove or put the word Pilates of the activity that they perform, regardless of their quality.

Pilates, Yoga or Swimming are highly recommended activities in the Social-Health field to help reduce or eliminate pain many pathologies and injuries, these activities may or may not be of “low impact”, but do not work, from the concept of returning the overall functionality to the body, from the prevention, rehabilitation or recovery of pathologies , understanding the body as a whole. In Estudio Aequus we seek excellence in health through physical activity, we have standardized quality, both in training, as in the work system, with the sole purpose of providing it to your body and your health, so we prefer not to talk , in most cases, of products without standardized guarantee and thus not referring in terms of “good or bad pilates”, Estudio Aequus and its Work System, represent “the brand” in health through movement. a good health professional, whether doctor, physiotherapist, etc … years of study and experience are required, so for the treatment of health through movement, we also need professionals who are up to the complexity of our body and its needs.

For this reason we collaborate directly with medical specialists: Rehabilitation Doctors, Traumatologists, Rheumatologists, Gynecologists, Endocrinologists, Sports Medicine and Children’s Medicine, who recommend us to their patients.

WHAT ARE THE APPLICATIONS AND BENEFITS OF THE AEQUUS SYSTEM AND PILATES?

90% of our clients come to the Center, referred by doctors or physiotherapists. We work with principles similar to active physiotherapy and rehabilitative medicine, but do not focus on the lesion, but work on improving the whole body, progressing towards the injury.

After an intervention, visit the doctor or physiotherapist and under your recommendation, the applications of their work are multiple.

  • Muscle Tendinosas: Tendinitis, cervicalgias, contractures, lumbago, imbalance syndrome, patellar syndrome, fibrillar rupture, ….
  • Articular: Fissures, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, arthritis, hernia and disc protrusions, calcifications, rupture of menisci, …
  • Ligamentous: ligament ruptures and ruptures, patella deviation, … Nerve: Spina bifida, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica … Misalignment: Scoliosis, hyperlordosis, hyperkyphosis, …
  • Other: Physical and postural work, muscle shortening in children and teenagers. I work with pregnant women and post-partum job. Pulmonary work; oxygenate the body, learning to breathe and use the thorax. Release stress and reduce or eliminate the pathologies that are somatized by it, headaches, vomiting, migraines, diarrhea.

WHY THE AEQUUS SYSTEM?

Studies confirm that musculoskeletal injuries account for more than 80% of diseases whether a sedentary lifestyle or, on the contrary, active lifestyle. Lesions produced in large part by the inability of the bodies to implement the theories of ergonomics and risk prevention.

“With preventive physical work, many of the common pathologies would not cause present or future pain”

We lack good health and postural hygiene, both in our private, sports and work life. We need a balanced body, functional and physically prepared to carry it out.

Normally swimming, Pilates or Yoga is recommended, activities that do not work in a specific way the pathology, or the needs, are not rehabilitative and / or do not have the supervision of a professional that can read the body, adapt the sequences, progressions or modify the exercises correctly, to achieve optimal physical preparation, rehabilitation or recovery.

It is not enough to strengthen. In a lumbar hernia, for example, we need to generate an intervertebral space, tone all the transverse abdominal and obliques symmetrically to create a muscular band that is also flexible; In addition to giving joint mobility to the entire spine, breathe properly and work the body giving it muscle balance, as well as a correct alignment, supported by all the above, which avoids relapse in the root that caused the injury and minimize or eliminate the pain.

” Our system achieves a capable body “

WHAT IS OUR PROGRAM OF THE COURSE BONUSED FOR WORKERS OF GENERAL REGIME?

After a musculoskeletal assessment, we explain and advise the student which of the programs should follow. These programs seek to offer maximum health, quality of life to our body and prevent possible pathologies that generate pain and lack of quality of life. Classes will be held in groups of a maximum of 10 workers. If possible, with similar physical conditioning factors; pregnant, postpartum, pain level or physical capacity.

“We must all be users of a correct physical education”

Two hours a week L / X or M / J are enough for a period of between one and three months, depending on the client , we get a considerable improvement of the pathology and the pain that supposes. In most cases we also obtain a good physical condition, improved health and postural hygiene.

Programs

  • Delivery of teaching material
  • Small-skeletal assessment
  • Mobility rib cage (breathing)
  • Neutral columnPosition of the spine
  • Elasticity
  • Airline (tread, shoulders, pelvis, etc.)
  • Body awareness
  • Tonification

It is very much what can be done in the area of ​​prevention, education and awareness raising to significantly reduce the risks of pathologies in workers.

WHY ARE THE ERGONOMICS COURSES INSUFFICIENT?

The sedentary work is characterized by a lack of physical movement, at the same time as by an enormous effort of the central nervous system. The work before a screen often leads to a contracted posture and, consequently, back pain, discomfort in the eyes, fatigue, etc.

65% of the workers who suffer from postural discomfort associate these problems with furniture. The companies look for the solution in the improvement of the furniture, an absurd expense but it is complemented, for the improvement the quality of movement and the postural hygiene, which is mechanized with the Aequus System and the Pilates of Aequus.

The loading works, besides physical effort, can lead to a sedentary situation and then make a great effort, such as a policeman who after hours sitting in the car patrolling, in tenths of a second should start to run. Positions of standing up, sitting in a car or motorcycle, on guard in a chair, to then make a great physical effort … all this will favor aggravated spinal pathologies, as we have said by the weight to be carried or by physical reactions brusca.

Is much can be done in the area of ​​prevention, education and awareness to significantly reduce the risks of disease in those who have a sedentary job.

WHAT SPECIAL CLASSES OR SPECIALIZED TREATMENTS DO WE HAVE?

In Studio Aequus we work by rhythms and levels, a priori almost all the body and needs can be “filtered” in any of the 80 groups, in the different schedules, however, looking for excellence we have some more specific groups if possible. Both in the Semiprivadas classes of machines and in the ground the segmentation by levels, even by objectives, ensures the correct evolution of each student.

SPECIAL CLASSESCOLIOSIS

This pathology at early ages may have a correction, even in some cases get its full rehabilitation in accordance with what grades

At any age, a symmetrical body work in the deep and stabilizing muscles, will help the body to create its own “muscular band”, that combining elasticity and a correct and indicated mobility in the spine, will release tensions, improving posture and our body is able to stabilize our scoliosis.

CRECIMIENTO, NIÑOS

Girls, children, adolescents, growing age need to have a supervision of their physical state and their body alignment. It is in those moments where we need to have the peace of mind that we are in good hands. Our children can grow up with poor postural hygiene. An exercise badly executed in a continuous way, is a muscular and corporal misalignment. A weak abdominal girdle is a painful back. It is time to share with your children your education for body care.

WHAT IS THE PÉLVICO OR PERINÉ SOIL?

Before knowing what and when we should go to a pelvic floor physiotherapist, we must be clear about what it is, since it is a “forgotten” component of our body and has a fundamental role in many of our vital functions.
Many of the people, especially those who have not had any problems with this part of their body, respond to the question about pelvic floor treatments with Kegel exercises, these exercises alone can not solve most problems or dysfunctions that presents the perineum, for this an exploration should be done, always in the hands of a professional in this area and plan a personalized treatment for each patient.

The pelvic floor is the set of muscles, ligaments and bones located at the base of the pelvis that support the bladder, the rectum and the uterus. These muscles can be differentiated in two planes:

  • Surface plane in which the muscles that form it extend from front to back between the pubis and the coccyx, laterally between the ischia. They draw a kind of eight that crosses at the level of an area called the tendinous center of the perineum. The main function of these muscles is sexual and also help support the viscera.
  • Deep plane. These muscles make up the highest plane, above the superficial muscles and are closer to the viscera. The set is dome-shaped, convex downward, concave upward. This superior concavity is opposed to that of the diaphragm muscle, hence its name “pelvic diaphragm”. These muscles and ligaments must have a correct state and function since it contains very important viscera such as the bladder and rectum and in case of women also the uterus and the vagina, while in man, the prostate.And … What functions does it have? Supports the abdominal-pelvic viscera, such as the bladder, vagina, uterus and rectum, and the baby in case of pregnancy. Continence. Controls the opening and closing of the sphincters in both urination and defecation. Reproductive function.It is the last barrier that the baby must make before the moment of delivery, thanks to these muscles the baby’s head is broken and the urge to push is provoked.
