What is ELDOA?

ELDOA translates into (Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches, and is taken from the French Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation Osteo-Articulaire)


The basic principle at work during an ELDOA consists of creating a position that will target a specific functional unit of a joint. This joint can be in the spine, hip, shoulder, etc. This means that the inferior (top) segment is fixed while the superior (bottom) segment is mobilized. This position is created to place all inferior and superior myofascial chains under tension.


Many pains, arthrosis, neurological pinching, disc compression and articular lesions result from compactions, compressions and/or articular blocks. As an effective solution to these ailments, ELDOAs consist of very precise postures which target relief in a specific articulation. The advantage of these postures is that once you learn them, they take only a minute a day to perform. These exercises help deco-op and add more fluidity to the joints.

Cortico-corporeal awareness is crucial in order to maintain precision of these tension, which combined with active diaphragm and passion cranio-pelvic breathing will generate the targeted osteo-articular de-copatation.
