Equipilates™ Biomechanics screenings
Available by appointment.
Intrinsic biomechanics screenings and correlating exercises address any low grade muscle spasm, nerve and joint mobility issues which may be affecting your ability to use your core muscles, your shock absorption capacity and your symmetry in the saddle.
The pelvis is the first part of your body which receives movement forces directly from the horse, and therefore restrictions here directly influence your position in the saddle- it is really common to have a pelvis which is twisted, shifted or tilted to the side, perhaps tipped too far forwards or backwards on one or both sides and legs which aren’t quite the same length!
These issues, which can develop into discomfort and compensatory patterns involving many other areas of your body, will be pinpointed in your screening and are so often helped quickly with simple and effective exercises.
