What is ELDOA?
(Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches, is taken from the French Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation Osteo-Articulaire)
The basic principle at work during an ELDOA consists of creating a position that will target a specific functional unit. The inferior segment is fixed while the superior segment is mobilized. The position is created to place all inferior and superior myofascial chains under tension.
Many pains, arthrosis, neurological pinching, disc compression and articular lesions result from compactions, compressions and/or articular blocks. As an effective solution to these ailments, ELDOA’s consist of very precise postures which target relief in a specific articulation. The advantage of these postures is that once you learn them, they take only a minute a day to perform. For over 35 years Guy Voyer, DO has perfected ELDOA with the continuing goal to hone treatments that deco-op and add more fluidity to the joints.
Cortico-corporeal awareness is crucial in order to maintain precision of these tensions, which combined with active diaphragm and passive cranio-pelvic breathing, will generate the targeted osteo-articular decoaptation.
