ELDOA 1 – Auckland, New Zealand
September 23, 2017 - September 24, 2017
Course Instructor: Stephanie McCusker
The ELDOA Level 1 Certification Course – Introduction to ELDOA – is designed for the client-practitioner with minimal or NO formal training in classic spine biomechanics or descriptive anatomy. ELDOA 1 is a two-day course. It is the BASIC Training for all other levels in the ELDOA Program. A significant portion of ELDOA 1 is devoted to the practical application of the most frequently used ELDOA exercises of the spine.
Lecture topics include: Who is Guy VOYER, DO, The History of the ELDOA According to Guy VOYER, DO, The Historical Synopsis of the ELDOA (How and why VOYER originally organized the material), What are the Goals of the ELDOA?, The Paradox of the Spine: Mobility vs. Stability, Functional Unit of Junghans and the intervertebral disc, and Back Pain: ELDOA – Address the Cause vs. Treat the Symptoms.
ELDOA Level 1 is a course for EVERYONE: exercise professionals and physical trainers, athletic trainers, massage therapists, coaches, golf and movement instructors, yoga teachers, athletic directors, all healthcare providers AND clients.
A mastery of the anatomy and biomechanics at this level is not necessary.
In the ELDOA Level 1 Course, it is more important that student-practitioners begin to learn how to think and problem solve – “How is it possible to do a movement for this region?” The course is designed so any person can enroll and, within two days, confidently apply the most frequently used ELDOA of the spine.
