What is Egoscue® Therapy?

The Egoscue® Method is postural therapy. It is based on the concept that pain, both chronic and acute, is due to misalignment in the body as it loses its designed posture. The human body is designed to move; however, with most of us becoming more and more sedentary, our bodies begins to develop musculoskeletal dysfunctions and compensations. When those are present, pain and injury set in or are lurking right around the corner. The Egoscue® Method restores the body back to its designed posture, alleviating pain and returning you back to an active, pain free lifestyle. You can learn more by watching our “What is Egoscue?” video.

How does Egoscue® work?

Egoscue® uses a series of gentle exercises and stretches to return musculoskeletal balance and symmetry back to your body. It’s no secret that muscles move bones. If your body has lost its designed posture, it’s because muscles have moved your bones into a new, dysfunctional position. Pain is the body’s way of alerting you to the fact that your body isn’t aligned, and therefore isn’t moving properly. Through The Egoscue® Method process, your muscles will be reeducated, being reminded how they need to be functioning in order to maintain proper alignment.

For most of our clients, they didn’t get in to their current position overnight, and they won’t get out of it overnight.
