What is the Egoscue Method?
The Egoscue Method was created by Pete Egoscue through his efforts to find solutions for his own chronic pain. More than four decades ago, Egoscue returned from Vietnam with a Purple Heart and ongoing nerve pain due to wounds suffered in battle. Like many of us, Pete was conditioned to rely on medical experts, but they focused on his symptoms and were unable to help him. So Pete began his search for a way to live pain-free, finding the true cause of his symptoms—his posture and balance. Over the years, Pete developed hundreds of gentle exercises that—when done with proper form in the right sequence—can restore posture, eliminate chronic pain, and increase functional mobility.
Who is the Egoscue Method for?
The Egoscue Method is for anyone who is limited by chronic pain or a lack of functional mobility. The Method has helped thousands of people find alternatives to surgeries and injections.
Though The Egoscue Method is primarily designed for those with chronic pain, it can also help eliminate pain associated with repetitive use, sports, and workplace injuries, and help those who simply want to maximize their health and well-being. If you want to optimize performance and take your body to the next level, Egoscue has the program for you.
