Self-normalization exercises

According to osteopathy, the body itself contains everything necessary for self-normalization. In order to help the body with this process, the osteopath applies corrective techniques to the injury and assigns the appropriate exercises to effectively maintain the corrective action. These exercises are quick and take less than five minutes a day to complete.

Backache prevention and treatment techniques (ELDOA)
(Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches, from its French acronym)

These self-normalising postural techniques were designed to create space between a bone and a specific joint and in doing so, create a decompression effect. This relieves pain and improves posture. Each vertebra has its own specific technique; for example, between the L4 and L5 lumbar vertebrae to prevent or relieve back pain caused by a discal hernia. ELDOA stretches are very precise and adapted to each person.

ELDOA effects:

  • Increase of the intervertebral disc
  • Regulation of muscle tone
  • Increase in blood flow
  • Proprioceptive facilitation of the targeted joints
  • Improvement of the myofascial chain
  • Correction of postural imbalance
  • FMetabolic and neuro-hormonal facilitation
  • Reduction of psychomotor barriers
