ELDOA (ETIREMENTS LONGITUDINAUX AVEC DECOAPTION OSTEO-ARTICULAIRE) ARE STRETCHING EXERCISES FOR BACK PAIN DESIGNED TO IMPROVE AND MAINTAIN GOOD POSTURE, SPINAL HEALTH, AND INTEGRITY.
Our lifestyles and the fact that we are living longer adversely impact our spines. If you are not actively supporting the health of your spine, it is just a matter of time before the spine succumbs and becomes symptomatic (exhibits pain) to these forces. No one is exempt from these forces! Performing ELDOA on a regular basis will counter these effects and help keep the spine healthy and useful.
ELDOA is a series of de-coaptative (space giving) longitudinal stretching exercises that can target any joint in your body and more specifically, the vertebral segments of the spine. A vertebral segment is composed of two bony vertebras (for example, L4 & L5 ), the spongy disc between them, and the tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves) that attach and directly influence the segment. The human spine has 23-24 vertebral segments. There is an ELDOA for each vertebral segment.
For a vertebral segment to de-coaptate, while performing ELDOA, a specific posture is assumed. The posture directs self-induced tension to the myofascial chain, influencing that particular vertebral segment and maintaining both the posture and tension that ELDOA demands for at least 60 seconds will give both the nervous system (‘driver’) and body (‘car’) time to become aware and adjust. Over time and with repetition, the body moves towards a position of postural normalization and eased tensions. Regardless of a person’s posture, these stretching exercises for back pain in Santa Fe have factors of progression, making the ELDOAs user-friendly and extremely effective.
The key to ELDOA’s success lies with the conscious integration of the body and nervous system. For the nervous system to reset the habitual postural positioning of the body, you must be consciously present (aware) during each ELDOA exercise. In essence, you are using these stretching exercises for back pain to retrain the nervous system to adopt the new posture.
Since structure dictates function, if you use ELDOA along with Myofascial Stretching, structural reinforcement, global functioning exercises, and a healthy holistic lifestyle, your function (performance) will improve in all areas of your life. Whether you are a professional athlete, a stay-at-home mom, a working professional, or anything in between, your quality of life will improve when you are living pain-free and in balance.
ELDOA was developed in the 1970s by world-renown osteopath and Orthopedic MD, Guy Voyer. ELDOA is the result of over thirty years of research and successful application in thousands of cases.
