The notion that the body/person has self-recovery capacity is an underlying principle in many manual and physical therapy disciplines. The capacity of the body/person to self-heal is also the premise of a Process Approach.
The aim of this approach is to identify the dominant recovery processes and to co-create with the patient environments that support these intrinsic processes.
These environments are a combination of manual treatment, exercise, daily movement and management in the psycho-social sphere. Lederman CPDO course The management focuses on three body/person processes associated with recovery: repair, adaptation and alleviation of symptoms. This is in contrast to the traditional Structural model in manual and physical therapies where it is believed that recovery, prevention of injury and even well-being can be achieved by creating ideal, optimal biomechanical conditions.
A Process Approach is a viable and practical development from the structural model in manual and physical therapies. It has important implications for clinical management, the role of therapist, the manual techniques used, the exercises prescribed and patient self-care management. These implications will be discussed and debated during the lecture.
The practical sessions will be a combination of group work that will explore management of different conditions using this revolutionary approach. Participants will be introduced to, and be able to practise, new manual approaches to expand their scope of practice. Contents: 50% practical, 50% theoretical.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
  • Understanding the principles of the Process Approach and clinical applications /management considerations
  • Understanding the limitations of the Structural Model in manual and physical therapies
  • Understanding the three recovery processes
  • Understanding recovery behaviour
  • Exploring obstacles to recovery
  • Creating environment for repair: management including manual techniques and self-care activities
  • Creating environment for adaptation: management including new clinical techniques and self-care activities
  • Co-creating environment for alleviating symptoms: management including clinical techniques/approaches
    and self-care activities
  • The multidimensional management: working in the tissue, neurological and psychological dimensions
  • Principles of self-care

PROPRIOCEPTION AND PROPRIOCEPTIVE EXERCISE: FACTS, MYTHS AND THERAPEUTIC IMPLICATIONS
 

Dr. Eyal Lederman

Date: 17 Sept 2020  •  18:30 - 20:30 h

 

CPD hours: 2  •  cost: CAN$ 70  • 10% DISCOUNT if booked before 1. May 2020
 
Suitability to attend: This lecture is open to all therapists and medical professionals, sports and personal trainers, physical education teachers, Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi teachers and practitioners; and, for anyone who is interested in the wonders of proprioception.
 
Lederman CPDO course Proprioception is an area in physical therapies and training where facts are mixed with therapeutic myths to the detriment of effective management. This lecture will aim to untangle this mix and provide the participants with a better understanding of how to work more effectively with proprioception. It will explore the role of proprioception in human movement, how this system is affected and recovers in musculoskeletal and pain conditions and how this recovery can be enhanced in rehabilitation.

Harmonic technique is a development of early osteopathic oscillatory manual approach by Dr Eyal Lederman. In the last 30 years he has researched this group of techniques, expanded the technique repertoire and highlighted their therapeutic value. Harmonic Technique has international recognition and has been taught in 23 countries.
This approach forms a part in several manual therapy and osteopathic higher education programmes.

Harmonic Technique is a three dimensional mobilisation of soft-tissues and joints. It is a rhythmic, manual therapy approach in which the practitioner tunes to the individual's natural body rhythms (resonant frequencies) emulating and amplifying these patterns. Harmonic Techniques can be applied therapeutically to different joints and tissues to aid different recovery processes.

Research over the last four decades demonstrates that passive movement, such as used during Harmonic Technique, has an important role in facilitating tissue repair and adaptation after injury and surgery as well as reducing pain and stiffness in various musculoskeletal conditions.

The workshop has a large practical component in which participants will be shown specific Harmonic Techniques that can be applied to different areas and joints in the body.


LEARNING OUTCOME:
  • Understanding of the biomechanical, physiological and neurological processes associated with Harmonic Technique
  • Understanding of the influence of Harmonic Technique on tissue repair, tissue fluid dynamics and adaptation
  • An understanding of neurological (analgesic influences) and psychological influences of Harmonic Technique
  • Be able to effectively apply Harmonic Technique to most joints in the body
  • Be able to identify conditions which may benefit from Harmonic Technique
  • Be able to apply Harmonic Technique to specific conditions commonly seen in manual and physical therapy practice

Dr. Eyal Lederman graduated from the British School of Osteopathy and has been in practice since 1986.
He is the director of CPDO, an international centre providing Continuing Professional Development for manual and physical therapists. Dr. Lederman completed his PhD at King's College, London, where he researched the neurophysiology of manual therapy. He also researched and developed Osteopathic Harmonic Technique, Osteopathic Functional Neuromuscular Re-abilitation and Osteopathic Functional Stretching.
He is an Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London (UCL), Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science UCL where has conducted research into post-surgery functional movement rehabilitation.
Apart from these activities, Dr. Lederman regularly teaches osteopathy and manual therapy to various groups and universities in the UK and abroad.
He has published several articles in the area of manual therapy and is the author of the books 'Harmonic Technique, Fundamentals of Manual Therapy', 'The Science and Practice of Manual Therapy', 'Neuromuscular Rehabilitation in Manual and Physical Therapy' and 'Therapeutic Stretching: Towards a Functional Approach'. He is currently writing a book titled 'Functional Exercise Prescription in Movement Rehabilitation and Sports'.
