What is the Egoscue Method?
The Egoscue Method a form of stretching therapy that is designed to provide pain relief from issues such as low back pain, sciatica and other forms of chronic pain.
Many times, the back pain we feel (especially chronic pain) is a result of years of poor posture, long hours of sitting, exercising and various repetitive movement patterns. The Egoscue Pain Free stretches can help retrain your muscles to fire in the pattern that they are designed to and prevent future pain issues from occurring.
The reason that this non-invasive therapy is growing in popularity is for several different reasons. The exercises are not only very low impact and easy to do, but they can be done anywhere without any special equipment. The Egoscue Method is also very cost effective and has successfully helped many people avoid constant pain and even surgery.
How Does It Work?
There are different ways to utilize the Egoscue Method. The first option is to purchase the book, flip to the section that covers your specific type of pain and do the stretches recommended each day until the symptoms are resolved. The second option is to purchase the DVD, which is designed to stretch, tone and re-educate all the muscles in the body. Both options are inexpensive and can be found on Amazon. However the key to success is to performing the stretches on a daily basis until you are pain free. And while these exercises do help in preventing various forms of chronic pain, it’s important to note that they do not in any way replace chiropractic care. Rather they may help to reduce the frequency of chiropractic care to once every four to six weeks.
