FUNCTIONAL NEUROMUSCULAR REHABILITATION
View Cart


Dr. Eyal Lederman

This three-day workshop explores the natural processes underlying neuromuscular recovery and how they can be applied clinically to improve the control of movement after musculoskeletal injury, pain conditions and CNS damage.
In the workshop the participants will be introduced to a functional-behavioural approach in which the individual's own movement repertoire is used for rehabilitation and to recover functionality. It explores how familiar daily activities can be amplified to provide the necessary challenges to recover motor control.
The course will move away from traditional models of rehabilitation that promote movement fragmentation and approaches that have little resemblance to normal human movement such as gym-based exercise, muscle-by-muscle and muscle chains rehabilitation, core training and dynamic stabilisation.

During the workshop the participants will learn to assess and identify the particular motor losses and develop specific strategies to help motor recovery. The practical aspect of the course will include hands-on manual approaches as well as specific challenges / exercise and self-care strategies to regain and improve control of movement and functionality.

TOPICS COVERED
  • Motor control and motor learning principles
  • Role of proprioception in movement
  • Training principles for sports and movement performance
  • The motor system in injury, pain and central nervous system damage
  • Rehabilitation of movement control after joint and muscle injuries
  • Rehabilitation of movement control post-surgery
  • Neuromuscular rehabilitation for patients with central nervous system damage (stroke, MS, head injuries)
  • Pain and the motor system
  • Psychological factors and motor control
  • Cognitions and behaviour in managing movement recovery
  • Self-care strategies for the patient
  • Exercise prescription
  • Injury prevention

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A FUNCTIONAL APPROACH TO CURRENT / TRADITIONAL MOVEMENT REHABILITATION:

Functional
- Goal movement / external focus of attention
- Whole movement rehabilitation
- Functional challenges using the individual's own movement repertoire
- Patient determines functional goals/outcome of rehabilitation
- Focus on recovery processes

Current/Traditional
- Internal focus of attention: muscles, joints, position, etc.
- Movement fragmentation, muscle-by-muscle rehabilitation, core stability training,
  scapular and dynamic stabilisation, etc.
- Extra-functional - exercise made up by the therapist
- Therapist / clinically determined outcome
- Focus on pathology

     Dr. Eyal Lederman has been practising osteopathy for over two decades. He completed his PhD in physiotherapy at King's College, where he researched the neurophysiology of manual therapy. He also researched and developed Harmonic Technique. He is involved in research examining the physiological effects of manual therapy and the development of Neuromuscular Re-abilitation. Prof. Lederman has been teaching manual therapy and the scientific basis of manual therapy in different schools in the UK and abroad. He has published 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"..
