The ELDOA are very precise postures that target specific joints regions to provide relief from pain and restore balance. Many think the ELDOA is only for the spine, but there are ELDOA postures for the shoulder, coxo-femoral joint, cranium and more. Designed by French osteopath Guy VOYER, DO, the ELDOA utilize myofascial chains to put tension around a primary lesion making it the center of ‘separating forces’. The myofascial tension solicits a postural normalization in a specific joint resulting in numerous benefits. ELDOA can be used to relieve pain, help with arthritis and neurological conditions, improve posture, and create a positive impact on the viscera.
