Barbara Outland Baker Posture-Pain Therapist
The Egoscue Method is a revolutionary form of exercise that returns people to full function. Egoscue (Ee-gos-kue)) is a unique and highly effective program designed to treat musculoskeletal pain without drugs, surgery, or manipulation. Once the load-bearing joints are aligned, the client experiences a pain free body that can enjoy full range of motion. As Egoscue therapists, we work with individual clients to assess posture in a novel manner. We observe minute details, ask for precise function tests, and take four photos matched to a grid. This data then allows for the design of stretches and gentle egoscuecises ("e-cises") chosen specifically to resolve individual issues. We teach each the daily e-cise menu so that the client is assured that these moves can then be done simply anywhere. Supported by our partnership, the client works out independently until returning for the next session. This process repeats itself until strength, function, balance and flexibility have been achieved. Please visit my web page for more information at www.posturegal.com. Should you be interested in his book, I will have copies of Pain Free by Pete Egoscue for $18.00.
Barbara Baker’s Background
A former Community College English Professor and author, Barbara Baker found herself facing retirement with debilitating pain. For thirty-five years, she pursued one healing alternative after another, finding only escalating chronic pain. The end of her search led her to The Egoscue Method. With each of twelve monthly menus, she inched her way to increasing pain relief and better function. The day her limp was gone, she knew she wanted to help relieve others of their type of pain. Within the next two years, she had completed her Egoscue University coursework to become a certified Posture Alignment Specialist. For three years, she has opened her doors as the Posture Gal of McKinney, in partnership with people resolved to end their pain cycle. Barbara demonstrates that old teachers never die…they find a new discipline to teach!
