HARMONIC TECHNIQUE
View Cart

Dr. Eyal Lederman
 
Harmonic Technique is a passive form of oscillatory, rhythmic techniques that can be applied to different joints and tissues.
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.




LEARNING OUTCOME:
  • Understanding of the biomechanical, physiological neurological processes associated with Harmonic Technique
  • Understanding of 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 passive movement
  • Be able to apply Harmonic Technique to specific conditions commonly seen in manual and physical therapy practice

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. Dr. 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".
