9780060924300: The Egoscue Method of Health Through Motion: Revolutionary Program That Lets You Rediscover the Body's Power to Rejuvenate It

No one is immune. For people from champion athletes to desk-bound white-collar professionals, many simple acts of life--a relaxing evening stroll through the neighborhood, an exhilarating run along a sandy beach, just bending down to tie a loose shoelace-are often acts of torture. The walking wounded suffer from torn rotator cuffs, tennis elbow, jogger's knees, bad backs, stiff necks, sore feet, and swollen ankles. It could, without exaggeration, be called a modem epidemic.

In this brilliant book, renowned anatomical functionalist Pete Egoscue identifies the epidemic's causes and effects. By recognizing that the human body is dependent on adequate motion to maintain its full range of physical functions, he has revolutionized both the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and the techniques for training athletes to achieve peak performance levels.

Brimming with common sense and practical advice, the heart of this important book consists of twenty-two easy-to-do, highly effective exercises that stretch, strengthen, and relax the body, allowing a return to proper alignment.

About the Author:


Pete Egoscue has been studying human anatomy for more than twenty years. His method has helped thousands of people learn low tolive healhier, pain-free livers and achiever complete ftness. He currently runs clinics in San Diego, California, and West Palm Beach, Florida.

From AudioFile:

Egoscue's theory is that the human body is meant to be in motion; as lifestyles have become more sedentary, the musculoskeletal system has gone out of alignment. The cassette is based upon Egoscue's clinical work and his book of the same title. Egoscue's voice is intermittently flat, fumbling and condescending. The first tape, which is devoted to an explanation of his method, is repetitious. The second tape covers the exercises. The tape is detailed enough to follow, but it would require copious note-taking by the listener to be of use. Audio is not an appropriate format for this topic. E.L.C. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
