Whether low back or scapular pain, TMJ, sciatica, or other, you can become pain free. Through proper motion, learn how to reclaim proper alignment of your shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. Become pain free through this Egoscue postural cure.
The Egoscue Method, developed by Pete Egoscue (www.egoscue.com) improves spine and joint alignment, which plays a key role in your body’s ability to function efficiently. The clever body uses any muscles it can to compensate for weak muscles and structural deviations, causing pain. A lack of motion continues the downward cycle.
Uneven weight distribution causes wear and tear on the vertebrae, discs, and cartilage and within supporting structures of ligaments and muscles. Conditions like herniated disks, scoliosis, worn cartilage, decreased range of motion, arthritis, migraines, carpal tunnel, neck, back, knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, and foot pain are all symptoms of structural deviations. An Egoscue e-cise menu can reverse this pain syndrome. Learn more in an interview with Pete Egoscue.
Our bodies require movement for growth, repair and maintenance. Less movement equals more weakness and degeneration of the body’s structure and systems. More movement equals more energy, aliveness, and optimism. Egoscue provides the winning game plan.
A Posture Alignment Specialist in The Egoscue Method coaches clients to revive their muscular structure. Chiropractors reposition bones and physical therapists recondition an isolated body part; an Egoscue therapist trains you to restore the entire body as a unit. Because muscles move your bones, you once again enjoy your proper S-curve and load-bearing joint alignment.
