What is ELDOA?

We have been teaching the ELDOA™ postures at the studio since taking our first course with Dr Guy Voyer back in 2012 and while the way I utilize the ELDOA™ has changed a little bit over the years as I gain a better understanding of the exercises themselves and using them with our clients for improvement in ability to move, decrease pain and generally get stronger!

The ELDOA™ are postural exercises (LOADS) that you can do yourself  after receiving personalized instruction, with the primary goal being to increase the space within a chosen articulation or joint. As the ELDOA exercises “create” space, the result is improved joint mechanics, increased blood flow, reduced pressure on the discs, a reduction of pain, spinal disc rehydration, better muscle tone, improved posture, and a sense of well being and awareness. . The human spine is a complicated and vital structure. The ELDOA are very precise postures that target a specific joint region to provide relief from pain and restore balance and were developed by French osteopath Guy VOYER DO.

The ELDOA (Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptition Osteo-Articulaire) utilize myofascial stretching to put tension around a primary lesion making it the center of “separating forces.” The myofascial tension encourages a postural normalization in a specific joint resulting in numerous benefits. These exercises are both stretching and strengthening by their nature as we work at the end range throughout a fascial chain to gain the desired affects individual articulations

The English acronym is (Longitudinal Osteo-articular Decoaptation Stretches – the English acronym) are postural self-normalizing techniques, which aim at widening the space within a pair of joints. It is possible in one minute a day to relieve disc compression between L5-S1 or any vertebral segment or even more specifically at different parts of the sacro-illiac joint.

The Goals of the ELDOA™ are as follows:

• To create more space between the vertebrae.

• To create more space for the intervertebral disc.

• To depress the nerve between the vertebrae.

• To improve proprioception of the vertebral joint segment.

• To improve proprioception of the Function Spinal Unit (FSU).

• To hydrate the intervertebral disc.

• To move all the parts of the annulus fibrosis to stimulate the water intake.

Titleist Performance Institute certifications

Roy is certified through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) for all 3 golf fitness instructor levels, which is the highest designation available through TPI.

Since the late 1990’s, the game of golf has seen a seismic shift in how player’s at the highest level prepare and maintain their bodies for competition. Player’s are more powerful, more athletic and better equipped at an earlier age to perform at the highest levels while older players are extending their careers at incredibly high performance levels.

The game has reached a point where its participants do not need convincing that better fitness, biomechanics and health will improve their chances of playing their best. Today’s golfers need to be convinced that their instructors are up to date with the latest information on the sport.

Golfers want to trust their coach, instructor or practitioner. TPI Certification gives golfers that trust!
