Good vs. Evil
Compression is the Villain and ELDOA is the Super Hero
Compressive forces are the spine’s biggest enemy, and ELDOA is the spine’s greatest friend. For those who don’t remember, ELDOA is a 1-minute exercise designed by Guy VOYER for the purpose of decompressing the targeted joint. There is an ELDOA exercise for almost every joint in the body, but the most powerful ELDOA are for the spine and pelvis.
Compressive Forces on the Spine
The body is designed so that many different tissues work to dissipate daily compressive forces. However, this requires all the tissues to be in a healthy state, which rarely occurs in modern society. When the collective tissues cannot absorb the compressive forces that come from injury, exercise or daily living, the spine and its individual motion segments are the last line of defense. A motion segment is composed of two vertebrae and a disc, which are called on to do a lot of work and absorb a lot of compression. That is the source of virtually all the spinal pathologies surrounding us today. Over 70% of the population will suffer from back pain in their lifetime.
What Spinal Pathologies Does ELDOA Help?
ELDOA is the one technique that will help every common spinal pathology, including disc bulges, stenosis, degenerative joint disease, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, Schmorl’s nodes, scoliosis, arthritis and facet joint injuries. Every single one of these pathologies will benefit from specific ELDOA prescribed by a certified ELDOA instructor. Even better, a consistent ELDOA practice can prevent all of these pathologies from occurring.
