How Egoscue can help kids

This is a terrific testimonial from our clinic in Orange County, CA. It highlights a really important point about Egoscue. When we say we work with people of all ages, we’re not kidding. We’ve had clients as young as 3 years old and as old as in their 90s. This is the story of a 6 year old boy whose life was severely limited by pain that doctors couldn’t diagnose. Then he found Egoscue, started doing some ecises and now he can be a kid again! I’m really happy for him and his family and wanted to share their story with you. Enjoy!

“When our son, Charlie, first began to walk, he use to hit his legs, rub them over and over again and cry. He was not old enough to tell us exactly what hurt, but we could tell something was wrong. The pain would keep him up for hours at night. We took him to doctor after doctor and no one could find anything medically to explain his pain. They labeled it growing pains and said there was not much that could be done for him.

At 6 years old he could not walk far or participate in sports without being in severe pain at night. However, he had the energy of a healthy, young boy and inevitably he would run, jump, and play…only to have to pay for it with the pain that brought him to tears at night.

We knew there had to be a better explanation than growing pains. There had to be something that could be done for our son. That’s when we found Egoscue.
Within a few short weeks of starting the exercises, Charlie’s posture improved. His joints began to line up better. We noticed a dramatic increase in his overall body strength. And best of all, the pain decreased substantially.

Today, gratefully, he is far more active than he ever has been. Recently, we went for a 2 hour bike ride! We came home and had him do some of the Egoscue exercises to prevent pain that night, and he was fine! No pain!

There are still occasional days when he struggles with pain, but it is far less than it was before Egoscue. And now, when he hurts, there is more to do for it than just giving him Motrin and wondering how long he’ll be in pain for this time. We have a plan of action. We immediately do some of the Egoscue exercises! By doing those, we are able to get the pain under control in 10 minutes or less! That is dramatic improvement for Charlie who used to suffer for hours at a time.

Needless to say, Egoscue has really improved Charlie’s life. He is such a happier kid now that he is not in pain all the time! We can finally be the active family we have always wanted to be. It is wonderful to see him outside running around and not have to worry that he’ll be in pain that night. Every child should be able to run and play without a care in the world. Egoscue has made that possible for Charlie.”
