Egoscue Method - L5/S1 herniation

Hi all,

anyone tried the Egoscue method ? I've had my first session which was an eye opener. The therapist took various pictures and it was plain to see that I had various postural anomalies from an anterior pelvic twist to misaligned hips, uneven shoulders and a forward head posture. 

After a a series of what seemed like very basic excercises, started to see improvements in my posture which will ultimately seek to take stress off the discs. 

Granted it is only the first session, but I will continue on in tandem with the traditional physio to see how things progress. 

Intrigued if anyone else has given this a shot. 

Im in the UK, where the number of therapists is fairly limited because but there are many more centres in the US. 

Happy weekend 

Jay

    I am feeling pain only when I look at the stretches from Egoscue. I have very poor mobility and many stretches are too painful for me. The only exercises that worked in my current state are isometric with spine in neutral position.
