Background: The Godelieve Denys-Struyf method GDS is a motor learning intervention that may be applied in group or individualized sessions. Design: This was a cluster randomized controlled trial. Participants: The participants were people with subacute and chronic low back pain LBP. Intervention: Clusters were randomized into 3 groups. All participants received medical treatment and a minute group education session on active management.

Pain often shows a link between biomechanics and behavior. This excess leads to compensations until these compensatory movements no longer keep us in relative well-being. Pain persists and insists for us to modify our way of being and moving in space: the goal being to recover equilibrium in daily gesture.
The G. Method was developed in the beginning of the 's by Godelieve Denys-Struyf, Belgian physiotherapist and osteopath. Her keen sense of observation, reinforced by her abilities as an artist and portraitist, helped define and gradually evolve a comprehensive observational method that links the mechanics of the body and its behavioral expressions.
This method identifies six independently chained muscle families that the body uses to express a person's conscious and unconscious behaviors.
These muscle chains, when flexible and finely tuned , ensure adaptability and responsiveness to the physical world. However, when parts of the chain become habitually tense this can cascade down the chain thereby affecting other independent chains and creating tension patterns throughout the body. This result manifests itself outwardly by limiting physical articulation, influencing posture and creating other undesirable physical expressions.
Through observation and analysis a knowledgeable practitioner of this method can identify and, subsequently, affect the imprinted chains that are contributing to a person's reported pain and discomfort.
They all support the importance of the right gesture and the human sensorimotor development I use the combination of the two approaches to speed up the recovery of swallowing disorders and chronic musculoskeletal chronic pain.
