Eldoa Exercise - Workplace wellness

ELDOA method in the workplace for a wellness program

ELDOA stands for Elongation Longitudinaux Decoaption Osteo-Articulaire.

This system of exercises will work specifically on the spine at every intervertebral level and include the costal and pelvic articulations.  It was developed by the Osteopath Guy Voyer in Europe more than 30 years ago.

ELDOA are postures that mainly use tension within the fascial chain to create space within a joint to preserve or improve its function and maximum health. They are postural exercises that have the purpose to create space within a chosen articulation in the body. By creating tension through various fascial chains simultaneously throughout the body.

ELDOA postures are very specific compared to other techniques. Disc compression existing at any level of the spine can be addressed through a specific ELDOA exercise, for example, it is possible in one minute a day to relieve disc compression.

Fascia is made up of fibrous connective tissue containing closely packed bundles of collagen fibers oriented in a pattern parallel to the direction of pull. Fasciae are similar to ligaments and tendons as they have collagen as their major component. They differ in their location and function: ligaments join one bone to another bone, tendons join muscle to bone, and fasciae surround muscles and other structures.


ELDOA has numerous benefits:

  1. Improvement in joint mechanics 
  2. Reduced pressure on the discs
  3. Reduction of acute and chronic (back) pain
  4. Spinal disc rehydration
  5. Better muscle tone
  6. Improved posture
  7. Sense of well-being and awareness
  8. Reduced forward-head posture
  9. Increased flexibility
  10. Increased blood flow 
  11. Reduced stress
  12. Sciatica relief
