Everyones first priority should be wellness! Whether you are wanting to improve longevity and vitality, improve athletic performance or relieve pain, you don't want limitations to impede your life.

Surgery OR ELDOA?

You have pain in your joint because you have too much pressure (coaptation), to remove the pressure (decoaptation) you have two possibilities. Surgery or ELDOA?

Surgery is not your only option.

ELDOA is a French acronym Étirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation Ostéo Articulaire, or more easily translated to Longitudinal (axis) Osteo-Articular Decoaptation.  It is a revolutionary technique created by world renown Osteopath Guy VOYER DO and is based on scientific principles and 35 years of research.

The primary goal of ELDOA is to increase space by decompressing (decoaptation) the specific joint. There is an ELDOA for every joint in the body.

As the ELDOA “create” space, there is an improvement in joint mechanics, increased blood flow, reduced pressure on the discs, a reduction of pain, spinal disc rehydration, improved posture, and a sense of well being and awareness.


ELDOA techniques are good for everyone with back pain but it also works for all joints in the body. Wherever your pain, there is an ELDOA for you. ELDOA can remedy pain in the ribs, shoulder, head ... the WHOLE BODY. For example, there is an ELDOA for the ribs that will help with the function of your lungs.

ELDOA relieves:

LUMBAR SPINE: Lower back pain, from disc bulges, protrusions, extrusions, compression by the disc herniation, degeneration, sprains, strains etc

THORACIC SPINE: Mid-back pain, from trauma injury, poor occupational ergonomics, scoliosis, kyphosis, osteoporosis

CERVICAL SPINE: Neck pain from whiplash, head injuries, military neck, intervertebral disc degeneration, text neck, regular headaches etc

PELVIS & SACROILIAC JOINT: Pelvis pain from sacroIliac joint and pubis symphysis dysfunction, coccyx (tailbone) trauma etc

COXOFEMORAL HIP: Hip pain from osteoarthritis, labral tear, tears to the labrum cartilage from repetitive use or sports injury, abnormal shape of the ball-and-socket joint and bone spur on the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint etc

SHOULDER JOINTS: The AC and SC joint can be damaged from sports injuries and falls. etc


It is possible in just one minute a day to relieve a particular articulation with an exact ELDOA position adapted to each person.

The working principle of ELDOA, using tensegrity biomechanics and 35 years of fascial research were designed to "create space" (decoapt) within a precise joint or a segment of the spine, this is accomplished by creating fascial tension to fix the vertebra below and contraction in extreme range to normalize the vertebra above the targeted disc. By creating myofascial tension (tension in the fascia), the ELDOA can affect the tissue, ligaments, nervous tissues, and organs associated with that joint or spinal segment. There are ELDOAs for the spine, sacro-illiac joint, shoulders, hips, ribs, and skull.
