3 day course | Live, in-person only | taught by approved ELDOA instructor - ELDOA™ exercises for all the Spine: L5/S1 up through C2/C3 - Descriptive anatomy of the spine - Intro to tensegritive biomechanics of the spine
ELDOA 3 - The Ribs, Shoulder Girdle, & Hips

ELDOA™ 4 - The Pelvis
5 day course | Combo of Online & Live Practical | taught by Guy VOYER, DO & approved ELDOA™ 4 instructor ELDOA of the Sacroiliac Joints, Sacrum and Pubic Symphysis.
ELDOA level 4 is taught in binomial: - The theoretical part of 2 days online, is taught exclusively by Guy VOYER, DO. - The practical part of 3 days in class, is taught by instructors certified by Guy VOYER DO, to date Justin Brien, Scott Herrera and Bryce Turner.
The first part of the seminar consists of:
To answer any biomechanical or techno-methodology questions related to the ELDOA classes in levels 1, 2 and 3
To teach the relational anatomy of the pelvis, its container and its content
To explain the tensegrity biomechanics of the pelvis inrelation to the rest of the spine
To describe the analytical biomechanics of the 22 main axes of the pelvis
To analyze the diagnostic tests of the 22 axes of mobility of the pelvis
The second part of the seminar covers mastery of diagnostic testing and mastery of specific ELDOA of all parts of the sacroiliac joint, sacrum, sacrococcygeal joint and symphysis pubis. Prerequisite: Students must have completed ELDOA 1, 2 and 3or have completed the SomaTraining program and be a graduated SomaTrainer.
For those who have not met these prerequisites, you may attend the course, but you will not be certified until you have completed Levels 1, 2 and 3 or completed the SomaTraining program.
At the end of this course, there is an exam covering the theoretical and practical parts of ELDOA 1,2 and 3. Upon successful completion of this exam, you will graduate as an ELDOA Trainer.
At the end of this course, those who want to teach ELDOA levels 1,2 and 3, can be certified by following the certification protocol supervised by Guy VOYER DO and Scott Herrera.
ELDOA™ 5 - ELDOA™ Therapist
The goal of ELDOA™ 5 is to be an ELDOA Therapist. This implies mastering the relational anatomy of the spine, the tensegrity biomechanics of C2SC (cranio-spino-sacro-coccygeal), the pathologies of the spine and the main classical treatments proposed. Then, with this knowledge, the treatment via ELDOA will be taught and mastered.
The ELDOA level 5 is organized in 3 courses, ELDOA 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3, which are taught only by Guy VOYER, DO.
The courses must be taken in consecutive order. After completion of ELDOA 5.3, the student can call themselves a "Certified ELDOA™ Therapist". - ELDOA™ exercises for all spinal pathologies (lumbar, thoracic, cervical & TMJ) - Orthopedic spinal pathologies - Tensegritive biomechanics for all spinal pathologies (lumbar, thoracic, cervical & TMJ)
5.1 - 4 day course | Online | taught by Guy VOYER, DO ELDOA 5-1 students will have a thorough understanding of:
a preparatory approach to spinal pathologies and scoliosis treatment
5.2 - 4 day course | Online | taught by Guy VOYER, DO Often spinal pathologies, lumbar, back, thoracic, and/or cervical pain, lead to insufficient medical treatment, which unfortunately results in traumatic surgery. Other preventive and curative treatments require the intervention of physiotherapists, chiropractors, or osteopaths.
The ELDOA™ 5 student will not become a doctor, a physiotherapist or an osteopath, but they will have a precise idea of their therapeutic methodology, through a precise description of many pathologies of the spine.
Many topics will be studied:
Principal causes of mechanical back pain.
Principal Exams and Tests,(X-Rays, CT scan, CAT Scan, Neurological Exams, Bone Mineral Density (BMD), Discography Information,Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar, Electromyography (EMG), Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Myelography (Myelogram).
Spondylolisthesis (antelisthesis and retrolisthesis).
Osteoporosis, Osteopenia and Osteoporosis.
Herniated, Protrusion andBulging Discs, Diagnosis and causes of a herniated disc (Risk factors, Herniated Discs, Definition, Progression and Diagnosis), Herniated DiscTreatment (Medications, Drugs and Spinal Injections for Herniated Discs, Discectomy, Fusion, Spinal Instrumentation, Role of bone graft in spinal fusion surgery).
Types of spinal fractures, symptoms and treatment of spinal fractures.
What you need to know about sciatica? (Symptoms, principal causes, and treatment of sciatica).
Sleeping well with back or neck pain and ergonomic advisories.
3D spinal implants (A glimpse into the future).
Spinal cancer: what you should know? (Understanding metastatic spine cancer and spinal tumors, symptoms of metastatic spine, cancer and spinal tumor diagnosis, how angiography fits in a spinal cancer treatment plan, symptoms of multiple myeloma in the spine, how multiple myeloma of the spine is diagnosed, spinal chondrosarcoma, understanding spinal osteosarcomas, radiation therapy for metastatic spinal tumors.
5.3 - 4 day course | Live Practical | taught by Guy VOYER, DO This course is exclusively practical.
There will be a description, a learning, an adaptation, of different ELDOA adapted to the pathologies that have been studied previously. For many clinical cases the ELDOA will be mastered.
Practical tests concerning ELDOA 4, as well as ELDOA 5.1 and 5.2 will be performed to validate the first part of the graduation as an ELDOA™ Therapist.
ELDOA™ 6 - ELDOA™ Expert
?? day course | Combo of Online & Live Practical | taught by Guy VOYER, DO - How to organize your self-treatment with ELDOA™ - Part 1: Mastery of the biomechanics of the skull and face bones - Part 2: Mastery of all the ELDOAs™ of all the joints of the body in a particular situation - Ex. a hip or shoulder with a prosthesis; an amputation; a spine with a Harrington rod; 2/3/4 vertebrae in fusion; an artificial disc; a post-traumatic osteosynthesis; a hemi-sacralization; a post-laminectomy; a vertebral tumor; a vertebral lumbarization; etc... - The study of some links with GPS (Global Postural Stretching) and GDN (Global Dynamic Normalisation) type exercises - How to develop an ELDOA™ for a specific situation? - Mastering ELDOA™ 6 will allow you to be an ELDOA Expert. - Exclusively taught by Guy VOYER, DO
