The Egoscue Method is a postural therapy program which involves a series of stretches and gentle exercises. It is designed to treat musculoskeletal pain without drugs, surgery, or manipulation. This is accomplished through bringing the skeleton back into proper alignment.
Founded by Pete Egoscue in the 70s, The Egoscue Method is postural therapy. It is based on the premise that both chronic and acute pain is due to misalignment in the body as it loses its designed posture. The human body is designed to move. However, with most of society becoming more and more sedentary, the body develops musculoskeletal dysfunctions and compensations. When those are present, pain and injury set in or are lurking right around the corner. IPT utilizes Egoscue principles and exercises to restore the body back to its designed posture, alleviating pain to return you back to an active lifestyle.
IPT incorporates postural and alignment restoration through a series of gentle exercises and stretches to return musculoskeletal balance and symmetry to your body. It’s no secret that muscles move bones. According to Egoscue, if your body has lost its designed posture, it’s because muscles have moved your bones into a new, dysfunctional position. Pain is the body’s way of alerting you to the fact that your body isn’t aligned—and therefore isn’t moving—properly. Let IPT re-educate your muscles and remind them how they need to function in order to maintain proper alignment and become pain free.
