Harmonic Technique is a classical osteopathic technique which has been ‘ rediscovered’,researched and further developed for use in modern practice by Eyal. I attended one of Eyal Lederman’s weekend courses in Harmonic Technique and was impressed with his logical and structured approach to the subject. Harmonic Technique with Dr. Eyal Lederman. By Mark on Harmonic Technique is a three dimensional mobilisation of soft-tissues and joints.

Accompanied by a range of practical on-line videos and over photographs, this volume will be ideal for all manual and physical therapists, sports and personal trainers, and athletes who require special movement ranges. It explores movement control and how it is affected by injury, pain and central damage. 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.
Practical application combined with scientific research an. 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. Case histories in the book are useful in applying the technique to clinical situation, bringing it to life. I found it thought provoking and can imagine myself dipping into it uarmonic a fairly regular basis in practice.
These modest outcomes were observed for all forms of stretching approaches.
Harmonic Technique with Dr. Eyal Lederman
Functional stretching has been developed over 10 years by Prof 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 research in the areas of tissue ledetman, motor control, 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 potential use of functional stretching in pain alleviation and ROM desensitisation. 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 hramonic 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. Neuromuscular Rehabilitation in Manual and Physical Therapy explores the vast and complex discipline of neuromuscular rehabilitation and simplifies it for ledemran use.
It is a practical source book for practitioners of manual and physical therapy who work with movement rehabilitation after musculoskeletal injury and pain conditions, sports rehabilitation, surgery and central nervous system damage.

The Science and Practice of Manual Therapy is a comprehensive examination of the human response to manual therapy and touch. It explores the physiological, neurological and psychophysiological basis of manual techniques and how they affect the human body. It will also help the therapist provide safer and more effective treatments. This practical text describes the fundamentals of this important technique and explains how it may be used in practice.
The biomechanical and physiological basis of the technique are also presented.
Illustrated with over 50 photographs it provides a detailed step-by-step guide to the implementation of the technique. The 40 minute video which accompanies the book gives a detailed demonstration of the different techniques together with spoken instruction on how to use them. This set is a complete guide to this important area of manual therapy. CPD Courses with Dr. Research over the last four decade has demonstrated that passive movement, such as used during Harmonic technique, has an 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. 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 factors. For this reason a process approach will be used as a model for management. In this approach the focus of management is on the three recovery processes associated with improvement from musculoskeletal conditions — repair, adaptation and modulation of symptoms.
The management aims to co-create with the patient environments that will support these self recovery processes. The practical session will include a demonstration and practice of specific manual techniques and self-care management and exercise.
