What is ELDOA?
I have a prediction and you can quote me on this. “What Green Smoothies have become to modern nutrition, ELDOA will be to the fitness & rehab industry.”
I recently returned from a two day course in Dallas on ELDOA. When I first heard about it from one of my teachers, Dan Hellman, through the C.H.E.K Institute, the concept of a science based exercise to decompress joints strongly resonated with me. I saw ELDOA as the yin to all the yang that comes with fitness conditioning and the gravity of daily life on the spine.
ELDOA is a french acronym which, translated in English stands for Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches. Designed by French osteopath Guy Voyer DO, the ELDOA are postural exercises with the primary goal being to increase the space within a chosen pair of joints. This improves joint mechanics, increases blood flow, reduces pressure on the discs, reduces pain, increases muscle tone, improves posture and overall well being … and makes you taller!
For me personally, ELDOA is now part of my regular body maintenance routine.
