Benefits of exercise

The full tilt of the 6th level on the FISIO functional hinges is performed with dynamic body movements

By doing this exercise, you will be able to stretch the calf muscles, thigh muscles, and improve the mobility of the thoracic spine. The middle part of the back is often not mobile enough, as a result of a sedentary lifestyle, many people have to deal with tension in the shoulder blades, heaviness in the neck-collar area. All this leads to back pain and discomfort during movements.

This exercise will help improve the mobility of the back muscles, accelerate blood circulation, relieve swelling and tension, which will have a positive effect on overall physical health.
