Pain Free - A Revolutionary Method for Stopping Chronic Pain explains a groundbreaking system developed by Pete Egoscue, a renowned physiologist and sports injury consultant. The Egoscue Method involves a series of simple exercises called "E-cises" that are targeted to specific musculoskeletal functions.
The method succeeds because it treats the body as a closely integrated unit. All of the muscles in our bodies form unbroken chains and interact closely with one another, so exercises that isolate or "target" specific muscles do not work.
The exercises are deceptively simple and require no specialized equipment, but each one is designed to pinpoint a specific musculoskeletal function. And trust me, if any of those functions have been compromised, those simple exercises become exceedingly difficult.
The idea is that if our bodies are deprived of movement, they literally forget how to move properly, so the E-cises reteach the muscles what to do and how to do it.
Whether you are attempting to right a specific wrong that has occurred or you have everything working properly and you'd like to keep it that way, I highly recommend that you get yourself a copy of Pain Free and try the E-cises that apply to you. Your body will thank you.
