New Year, New Movement
The ELDOA by definition, based on the work of Guy Voyer, are postural exercises that can be done yourself. The primary goal is to increase the space within a chosen articulation (joint).
As the ELDOA “create” space, there is an improvement in joint mechanics, improved blood flow and reduced pressure on spinal discs in addition to better muscle tone, improved posture, reduction of pain, and an overall improved sense of well-being and body awareness.
The few goals of the ELDOA include:
- To create more space between the vertebrae and the intervertebral disc. This improves movement freedom and adaptation to the forces of the spine.
- To decompress the nerve between the vertebrae.
- To improve proprioception of the Functional Spinal Unit (FSU).
- To strengthen the postural system. The ELDOA mobilize the intrinsic muscles and improve kinesthetic stimulation (microstimulation) of the muscle.
The ELDOA are utilized in small group classes as well as individualized sessions in Lafayette exclusively at RegenEx Performance and Wellness located in the Oil Center. They can be contacted at 504 -915-1004 or via email at [email protected].
