Brief Summary:
Primary dysmenorrhea is the result of hypercontractility and uterine vascular ischemia is the most common gynecologic complaints in young women. According to the intensity of symptoms may impair daily living, work and leisure activities. Pilates brings the concept of moving the body for the recovery, maintenance and promotion of health through exercises that stimulate circulation, improving physical conditioning, flexibility and proper postural alignment, and promote improvement in the levels of body awareness, coordination and muscle control. In this sense, the objective is to investigate the effects of pilates in the symptomatology of primary dysmenorrhea. This is a study to be developed with students of Physical Therapy from the State University of Piauí-UESPI presenting with primary dysmenorrhea compatible clinical picture. A questionnaire will be used for research. The students with the framework of dysmenorrhea that meet the inclusion criteria will be assessed for anthropometric parameters, pain, flexibility, indirect assessment of contraction of transversus abdominis and quality of life before and after the treatment protocol using the pilates method, often 3 weekly meetings, totaling 20 sessions.
