ELDOA 1&2 Combination Course is a four-day course. It combines ELDOA Level 1 – The Most Frequently Used ELDOA of the Spine – with ELDOA 2 – The ELDOA of the Spine – taught in a four-day course format.

The first part of the course is dedicated to topics specific to ELDOA 1: The Educational Paradigm of Guy VOYER, DO and the Teaching Method – “Learn by Doing”. The History of the ELDOA, What are the Goals of the ELDOA?, Introduction to Spine Biomechanics and the Functional Spine Unit of Junghans, and the Philosophy of the ELDOA – “You Are Your Own Best Therapist.”

The second part of the course, The ELDOA of the Spine, concentrates on the following topics: Back Pain: Treat the Symptoms vs. ELDOA – Address the Cause, Good Posture – The Gravity Line and Spine Curvature Disorders, Kapandji Spine Biomechanics and Descriptive Anatomy, Water is Life: Intracellular Water vs. Extracellular Water, and Introduction to Factors of Progression. In this four-day course format, student- practitioners complete both ELDOA Level 1 and Level 2 Certification Courses.

Lecture topics include:

  • The History of the ELDOA

  • Guy Voyer’s Educational Paradigm (Learn by Doing, Complexity, Tensegrity & Biomechanics)

  • What is a Spine – Mobility vs. Stability

  • The General Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Spine
  • What is an Intervertebral Disc?

  • The Medical Approach to Back Pain vs. the ELDOA

  • The Philosophy of the ELDOA “You are your own best therapist”

  • Osteo-articular warm up

  • ELDOA exercise practice

With the help of the course instructor participants will work in small groups to work out the exercise progressions for each spinal segment and coach each other on how to correctly perform each exercise. This way everyone learns to both do and coach the ELDOA.

The goal of the intensive format is to immerse yourself in the anatomy and mechanics of the ELDOA while getting plenty of practical experience with it. So by the time you walk out of the class the last day, you will not only feel better and have an improved posture, but are also capable of teaching it to your clients or patient the very next day and deliver amazing results.
