Antonio founded Ergobal in 2001 with a vision of creating a viable solution to the growing problem of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) in the workplace, Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) and at play. Most MSD's include Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and trauma. Antonio has worked with injured workers in outpatient physical therapy for more than fifteen years, and with RSI especially, he has noted the "vicious" cycle patients go through: often unnecessary drug consumption, cortisone shots, and sometimes surgery. While these regimens often help alleviate symptoms, they do not address the underlying cause-Habitual Postural Misuse- which is the reason why symptoms often recur. Both RSI and trauma can be prevented and reversed using The Alexander Technique (AT). Antonio has had good results practising the Technique combined with physical therapy in the clinic, however, once done with therapy, it is highly recommended that patients continue with private AT lessons. Infact, many physicians with knowledge of the Technique's benefits often prescribe the AT to their patients, especially when all else has failed. Antonio believes it is the "missing link". Indeed, the Technique can provide a powerful educational component to the current healthcare system.

So whether you are an injured worker, musician, actor or athlete caught in the "vicious cycle" of pain, undue tension, stress and fatigue, or suffering from side effects of medication and surgery, break out of this cycle and try The Alexander Technique.
