What Is "Egoscue"?
Updated: Feb 12, 2020
The most simple definition is "Postural Therapy". A method that was created by Pete Egoscue that looked at the body as a "unit". The process is named after Pete who developed the method of becoming pain free by treating the body as a unit. Every part of the body works together to work functionally and in harmony. When one part of the body struggles, the other parts have to "pitch in" to compensate.
With this approach, understanding that the shoulders, hips, knees and ankles, all work interdependent, meaning they need each other. So we cannot isolate one part as if it was the only component. The Egoscue method views the body as a unit, analyzes what the dysfunctions are and how the body is compensating then creates a plan to recruit and engage the muscles as a unit from head to toe and side to side or bilaterally, to perform the way it was originally designed.
