The ELDOA Level 1 Certification Course – The Most Frequently Used ELDOA of the Spine – 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.
Lecture topics include: Who is Guy VOYER, DO, The History of the ELDOA, What are the Goals of the ELDOA?, Introduction to Spine Biomechanics and the Functional Spine Unit of Junghans, and Back Pain: Treat the Symptoms vs. ELDOA: Address the Cause.
ELDOA Level 1 is a course for EVERYONE: exercise professionals and physical trainers, athletic trainers, massage therapists, coaches, golf and movement instructors, Pilates and 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.
