Rebalance your bodyNo wonder we have pain Looking in the mirror with new understanding it was obvious why I hurt This book explains it all very clearly This was a great book written in a very accessible manner It was also interesting to see Egoscue take primitive humans as the model for how he thinks we should continue to live in the world; he seems to have anticipated the primalpaleo craze by around a decade at least To me his main message is that the human body was designed to be in motion and if we do not give it the motion and also kind of motion it is designed for our bodies may then become dysfunctional meaning that our proper alignment shoulders knees ankles in a straight line etc becomes compromised The result of this eventually is pain and a possible further restriction of motion This book instructs the reader in a fairly simple self diagnosis then also gives himher a series of exercises designed to counteract and eventually correct hisher condition Since I've just started the exercises I have no idea whether or not my upper torso rotation will be or less fixed by the end of three weeks if I can stick with it that long and since I didn't have any pain to begin with and still have none I can't say anything as to the efficacy of the Egoscue Method However I like his attitude towards modern day ailments such as carpal tunnel syndrome if you weren't born with a birth defect or haven't had a traumatic injury that left your skeleton damaged somehow there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to say use a computer Our ancestors were doing much than that continuously without problems He contends that by using the keyboard in the proper way and by correcting existing postural problems the carpal tunnel will go away It seems to be that in his view surgery is almost always unnecessary Like I wrote before I like the theory but I have no idea how it plays out in practice Hopefully I'll find out in the next few weeks I think that this is a must read for anyone who is desirous to be aware of the health of their body The concept is simply that your bone structure is made so perfectly that when aligned as it is meant to be 100s of problems simple don't exist As a music teacher I am constantly on the look out for proper positioning at the keyboard I have noticed that it is getting harder to get a child to sit up straight They complain of back pain having rarely to never used those muscles before I agree that the plague of modern technology needs to be consciously counteracted or the rise of joint replacements etc continue until we have a situation like in the movie WALL E Don't get the mistaken impression that the Egoscue Method is going to fix you No way You're going to do the fixingNow ain't that a different mind set for taking responsibility for chronic painJust finished reading the book looks like I may be Condition 1 need to redo the diagnosis w my Physical Therapist Coach and Yoga instructor so it'll be a few weeksmonths before I seefeel any benefits we'll see I'm hopeful AwesomeWas looking at surgery for my ankle doctor's all said it was necessary went to several Then found this book Now I am pain free and did not need surgery Anyone in pain should read this book it WILL change your life Most of this book is pseudoscientific and unnecessary I doubt all of it stands up to medical science and most of it is worth skipping However the important part of the book is the exercises that help reduce chronic pain by realigning joints and muscles It sounds hokey but the essence is fairly straightforward I like his functional explanations and descriptions of how different movements and muscles can cause the body to shift and cause pain He really has a deep understanding of human motion Not all of the exercises are 100% effective for my goals but I was surprised at how many were effective Basic principle is that humans evolved over thousands of years during which they were in constant motion as hunters and foragers and now we sit at desks all day and wonder why we're in pain Also includes self diagnosis charts and guides and exercises to help strengthen and align the body in ways that will reduce pain Also says to hydrate way Good read but hard to see sticking with this without a PT to help guide along Lots of exercises but not many pictures for each sometimes it's hard to tell what to do based on the text even though the text is good It's also hard to know when to do an exercise a must read Very niceI found the information enlightening I will plan to practice the exercises The illustrations were very helpful I particularly loved the ending anecdote
