Egoscue is simple and the results are remarkable. It is a unique and very effective program designed to treat musculoskeletal pain without drugs, surgery, or manipulation. Egoscue is a process which involves a series of stretches and gentle egoscuecises ("e-cises") designed specifically for each client. This process strengthens specific muscles and brings the body back to its proper alignment and functioning the way it was designed--pain free. John Elder is the Clinic Owner/Director of The Egoscue Method Nashville. The Egoscue Method is the world leader in non-medical pain relief. John has been a client of The Egoscue Method since 1994. As a Division 1 Baseball Player for Yale University, John spent years trying to rehabilitate from chronic shoulder issues and a very painful Lumbar disc bulge. After two years of physical therapy and one cancelled surgery, John finally found relief from his pain after his first session with Egoscue and was an instant believer. That belief and his dedication to helping others become self-reliant to regain their lives and find freedom from pain, John switched from client to Egoscue Therapist in the spring of 2005.

John's motivating personality and his desire to shift the paradigm of healthcare from symptom care to client driven care is what makes him a highly sought after international speaker.

Certified as a Posture Alignment Specialist (Level II) and Accredited Exercise Therapist (AET) by Egoscue, John's focus during the therapy process is on the reduction of pain through correct joint alignment. He has been a featured columnist on this subject for Health and Wellness Magazine and the Nashville Striders "FunRunner" magazine along with being a keynote speaker at the National Renal Alliance annual conference. John has also been a featured speaker at the AFPA (American Fitness Professionals & Associates) National Conferences.

John is considered to be one of the major contributors to the "Patch Project Initiative" through the Egoscue Foundation where the goal is to take our younger populations and help them help themselves in a fun, healthy way...using the "PATCH".
