THERAPEUTIC STRETCHING:
TOWARDS A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH

Book & online video
By: Dr. Eyal Lederman
Publisher: Churchill Livingstone

 
A revolutionary new book about the therapeutic use of stretching. This book offers a highly accessible account of the latest information about the role of therapeutic stretching in the management of restricted range of movement (ROM) disorders. Richly illustrated throughout, this exciting new volume covers the physiological basis of stretching, explores its classification and examines what is normal and abnormal in terms of ROM. Chapters then explain the processes that are associated with ROM loss and recovery as well as what makes stretching effective. The experience of pain, sensitization and pain tolerance in relation to stretching and ROM recovery are also discussed. Embracing the latest scientific research, this revolutionary book debunks many traditionally accepted stretching theories and associated techniques and supplants them with a more robust, scientifically valid system of practice.

REVIEWS
"Overall, this package is effective: it provides clear description and explanation, enabling consumers to obtain a good feel for the technique. Case histories in the book are useful in applying the technique to clinical situation, bringing it to life."
Liz Horley, Physiotherapy, June 2000
 
"I enjoyed reviewing this set and would recommend it as a useful and informative book relevant to the work of all manual therapists, although a little expensive for osteopathic undergraduates. I found it thought provoking and can imagine myself dipping into it on a fairly regular basis in practice."

FOREWORD EXCERPTS 
"Clear writing, excellent organization and the effective use of line drawings, flow charts, boxes, tables and graphs have allowed Professor Lederman to succeed in producing an outstanding text covering the basic science and clinical application of all forms of manual therapy.
Professor Lederman's text is a masterful and fascinating presentation of the science of manual therapies."
Prof. Gregory D. Cramer, Chiropractician, 2004
 
"This book will be especially useful for students in the osteopathic schools. Beyond providing insight into the 'mechanisms of action' for manual techniques, Professor Lederman's text is written in such a way that it will facilitate the formulation of research problems that can be organized into reasonable experimental studies. It is my pleasure to recommend this text as a starting point for gaining an understanding of manual therapy for all students of body function and dysfunction.
Prof. Frank H. Willard, Osteopath, 2004
 
"The second edition of Professor Lederman's The Science and Practice of Manual Therapy arrives at a time when evidence-based practice is evolving as the state of the art in clinical practice. Practical application combined with scientific research an . understanding of anatomy and histology is the strong point of any treatment approach. The foundation of this book is built upon the above principles. At a time when pressures to increase productivity are prevalent, it is important to select techniques that have reliability and have proven to be successful in patient care.
Professor Lederman has provided us with a wealth of information designed to enhance our clinical decision making and technical skills."
Prof. Robert Donatell, Physiotherapist, 2004
