  • FUNCTIONAL STRETCHING     FULLY BOOKED
     
    Dr. Eyal Lederman

  • Clinical stretching has limited contribution to recovery of movement range in many musculoskeletal conditions - Immediate: 3°, short-term: 1°, long-term: 0° (Cochrane Database, CD007455)

    Find out why and how it can be resolved

    Loss of range of movement (ROM) is a common outcome following sports related injuries and has negative impact on sports performance. Often such ROM losses are associated with connective tissue/fascial and muscle contractures. Although there has been extensive research into the structure and function of connective tissue and fascia clinical application has remained largely ineffective. Recent systematic review has demonstrated that traditional stretching methods are ineffective in improving range of movement (ROM) in various conditions where contractures are present. These modest outcomes were observed for all forms of stretching approaches (Cochrane Database, CD007455).
    Functional stretching has been developed over 10 years by Dr. Lederman to provide a solution to the limitations of traditional stretching approaches. It focuses on active restoration of ROM, using task-specific, functional movement patterns. This approach is informed by original doctoral research carried out by Dr. Lederman at the British School of Osteopathy in collaboration with the physiotherapy department at King's College, London. This approach is also informed by research in the areas of tissue adaptation, motor control and pain and cognitive-behavioural sciences. Functional stretching can be used to recover ROM losses in various musculoskeletal conditions including post-injury rehabilitation, immobilisation, surgery, frozen shoulder and central nervous system damage. Part of the course will also examine the role of physical therapies in pain alleviation and ROM desensitisation.

    Learning outcome:

  • Understanding the biomechanical, biological, neurological and psychological-behavioural processes associated with loss of movement range
  • Understanding the processes associated with long-term length adaptation and recovery of movement range
  • Ability to identify the indications for therapeutic stretching
  • Ability to identify and develop a function ROM rehabilitation which is most suitable for the patients' conditions
  • Understanding the differences between therapeutic and recreational stretching
  • Review of various stretching approaches
  • Learning new functional stretching techniques to optimise therapeutic outcome in various musculoskeletal conditions
  • Understanding mechanisms in pain-sensitisation, ROM sensitisation and the approaches that could promote alleviation and ROM desensitisation

  • MANAGING COMMON SHOULDER CONDITIONS     FULLY BOOKED
     
    Dr. Eyal Lederman

  • A practical workshop exploring the theory and management of common shoulder conditions seen in clinic. In particular, the workshop will focus on frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome and post-operative management of the shoulder. There will be discussion of the aetiology and the pathophysiological mechanisms associated with these conditions and a review of current research findings. Many of the shoulder conditions seen in clinic are associated with complex processes that are not related to postural, structural or biomechanical predisposing factors. For this reason a process approach will be used as a model for management. In a process approach the focus is on how to support the three processes that underlie recovery - repair, adaptation and modulation of symptoms. It also explores the tissue, neurological and psychological processes that underlie the patient's condition. The management aims to match the most suitable interventions according to these processes rather than aiming to correct structural imbalances or anomalies. A process approach can reduce the duration of treatment/recovery of many shoulder conditions from many months to several weeks. In the workshop participants will learn how to develop specific treatment strategies and how to match the most suitable manual techniques and exercise to the patient's condition. The practical session will include a demonstration and practice of specific manual techniques and exercise.
     
    Learning outcome:
     
  • Understanding repair and adaptation processes in relation to the shoulder and related structures
  • Understanding the neuromuscular changes associated with injury and pain and how they influence motor control and motor recovery
  • A better understanding of pain and sensitization mechanisms and pain alleviation and desensitisation
  • Understanding the psychological processes associated with injury, pain and how they impede or facilitate recovery
  • Understanding how different techniques/exercise can be used to target repair, adaptation and motor control recovery
  • Developing a simplified method for diagnosis
  • Understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying frozen shoulder and impingement syndrome
  • Developing clinical management for common shoulder conditions such as: frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome, the post operative shoulder and more…

  • HOW TO MANAGE: LOW BACK PAIN
     
    Dr. Eyal Lederman

  • The understanding of low back pain has dramatically changed in the last two decades. Structural and postural models have been challenged and eroded by recent research findings. It has been shown that low back pain is unrelated to structural asymmetries, body imbalances or failure in motor control; beliefs that have dominated manual and physical therapies for over a century. This evening workshop will discuss the current research in chronic low back pain and how it impacts the management of this condition. It will explore how the new findings/understanding can be integrated into the traditional osteopathic/manual therapy approaches to provide a more effective management.

  • HOW TO MANAGE: CHRONIC NECK AND UPPER-BODY PAIN
     
    Dr. Eyal Lederman

  • The understanding of chronic neck and upper-body pain has dramatically changed in the last two decades. Structural and postural models have been challenged and eroded by recent research findings. It has been shown that in chronic upper-body and neck pain is unrelated to structural asymmetries, body imbalances or failure in motor control; beliefs that have dominated manual and physical therapies for over a century. This evening workshop will discuss the current research in chronic neck pain and how it impacts the management of this condition. It will explore how the new findings/understanding can be integrated into the traditional osteopathic/manual therapy approaches to provide a more effective management.

  • HARMONIC TECHNIQUE
     

    Dr. Eyal Lederman

  • Harmonic Technique is a passive form of oscillatory, rhythmic techniques that can be applied to different joint and tissues. It is one of the earliest form of osteopathic technique that has been researched and developed more recently.

    Research over the last four decade has demonstrated that passive movement, such as used during Harmonic technique, has important role in facilitating tissue repair and adaptation after injury. Intermittent external compression has been demonstrated to improve tissue healing as well as increasing fluid flow and reducing oedema. Passive motion has been recently shown to facilitate recovery from rotator cuff surgery and help resolve pain in frozen shoulder. These studies suggest that passive motion can be a useful clinical tool in the treatment of different musculoskeletal conditions.
     
    Learning outcome:

  • 1.Understanding of the biomechanical, physiological neurological processes associated with Harmonic Technique.
  • 2.Understanding of Influence of Harmonic technique on tissue repair, tissue fluid dynamics and adaptation.
  • 3.An understanding of neurological (analgesic influences) and psychological influences of Harmonic Technique.
  • 4.Be able to effectively apply Harmonic Technique to most joints in the body.
  • 5.Be able to identify conditions which may benefit from passive movement.
  • 6.Be able to apply Harmonic Technique to specific conditions commonly seen in manual and physical therapy practice.
