Reduce back pain, Increase Blood Flow, and Relieve Neck & Shoulder Tension

Introducing Ascend Body’s most dynamic class: The ELDOA Method, taught by CHECK Level 2 Coach – IAN RYAN. The only class of its kind in the country, this 1-hour long group fitness class begins with an intention (i.e. an area of the body to focus on), will follow with a warm up (awareness drills), and will finish strong with a series of mysofascial stretches and ELDOA’s around the intention.

WHAT IS ELDOA?

In short, ELDOA (Étirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation OsteoArticulaire), or more easily translated to Longitudinal Osteo-Articular Decoaptation of the Spine is a revolutionary stretching and strengthening technique for the spine and joints throughout the body. ELDOA postures are very specific compared to other techniques. If a client experiences pain because of compression between the 5th lumbar and 1st sacral, the de-coaptation position should target this exact level and not the one above or below.

Myofascial Stretching is the safest and most effective way to create space and balance in the body. This technique of stretching is extremely advanced because of its specificity to correct the body’s tensegrity through the fascial chains and it’s solicitation of the nervous system.

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

WORKING PROFESSIONALS & STUDENTS

One of the most common postural problems is the forward head posture. Since we live in a forward facing world, the repetitive use of computers, TV, video games, trauma and even backpacks have forced the body to adapt to a forward head posture. Repetitive movements in a certain direction will strengthen nerve and muscle pathways to move that way more readily. The ELDOA Method classes help to reverse these pathways by re-establishing your gravity line, strengthening the muscles of your back and spine, and correcting tensions of the restricted, overused muscles in your body.

SENIORS

“I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger!” FIghting gravity and the effects of inactivity is a lifelong endeavor! What are you doing to keep your spine strong, mobile, and healthy? Chronological aging may be inevitable but just as psychological health can be maintained with mental exercises, your biological health can be maintained and improved with the proper physical exercises. And It is never too late to start!

In the ELDOA Method classes, all of the positions can be modified to your specific needs or restrictions. The ELDOAs and Myofascial Stretches are incredible tools to help combat the detrimental effects that aging can have on your body.  You will feel younger, taller, and more energetic when you make ELDOA METHOD classes part of your lifestyle.

PRE AND POST SURGICAL PATIENTS

If we were to gather a group of middle age folks (45 average age) who have NEVER had back pain before and shoot MRIs on them all, here’s what we would find:

  • 38% would have disc bulges,
  • 37% disc protrusions (aka: contained herniations),
  • 11% disc extrusions (aka: non-contained herniations)
  • 4% nerve route compression by the disc herniation.

Some statistics of Low Back Pain and how it could be related to degenerative disc disease and herniated discs:

  • Most common complaint among adults
  • Lifetime prevalence in working population up to 80%
  • 60% experience functional limitation or disability
  • Second most common reason for work disability
  • Despite advances in imaging and surgical techniques Low Back Pan prevalence and its cost are relatively unchanged
  • 90% people age >50 have degenerative disc disease

If you are suffering from or have recurring bouts of back pain caused by spinal injuries, the ELDOA METHOD is what you need! These postures will alleviate your symptoms by addressing the cause at the source of the problem. Attending the ELDOA METHOD Classes will decompress your spine and reinforce ideal posture so you can help reestablish a healthy spine!

MORE ON ELDOA

Guy VOYER DO developed an ELDOA exercise for every articulation in the spine starting at the base of the skull and ending with the sacro-illiac joint. Disc compression existing at any level of the spine can be addressed through a specific ELDOA exercise. ELDOAs are not limited to just the spine. There are ELDOA postures for all joints of the sacrum and pelvis as well as the shoulders and skull.

ELDOAs are postural self-normalizing techniques designed for widening the space within a chosen articulation. This is accomplished by creating fascial tension to fix the vertebra below and contraction in extreme range to normalize the vertabra above the targeted disc. For example, it is possible in one minute a day to relieve disc compression between T6-T7 or even more specifically at the base of the long arm of the left sacroiliac joint. It is possible to create more room in a particular articulation with an exact position adapted to each person.

ELDOA postures are very specific compared to other techniques. If a client experiences pain because of compression between the 5th lumbar and 1st sacral, the de-coaptation position should target this exact level and not the one above or below.

Myofascial Stretching is the safest and most effective way to create space and balance in the body. This technique of stretching is extremely advanced because of its specificity to correct the body’s tensegrity through the fascial chains and it’s solicitation of the nervous system.

All muscles are wrapped in an aponeurotic sleeve and connected with each other through numerous fasciae. Everyone knows about muscle stretching; however, it is difficult to stretch a muscle if it is wrapped in a leathery sleeve which does not give. It is better to consider each muscle as links in chains extending throughout the length of the entire body. The goal of every Myofascial stretch is to put into tension the fascia that encases the muscles in order to normalize the length and function of the fascial chains. When you do Myofascial stretches, you correct structural imbalances and release tension across the joints which reduces inflammation and pain.

The flexibility gains from Myofascial stretches will improve your mobility, and overall health. As you become more flexible, you’ll find that you have better posture, greater range of motion, that you are able to perform tasks with greater ease, and you’ll suffer fewer injuries.
