  • The body is not a machine
  • It can't be fixed like a machine
  • Musculoskeletal and pain conditions reside within the biological not biomechanical dimension
  • Recovery from all conditions is a biological not mechanical process
A postural-structural-biomechanical (PSB) model is prevalent in many forms of manual and physical therapies. This model is use to explain the causes of various musculoskeletal and pain conditions. Within this model is the belief that 'bad' posture, body asymmetries and poor biomechanics are the cause of commonly seen musculoskeletal and pain conditions. The PSB model also plays an important role in clinical assessment and management, including the choice of manual techniques and the exercise prescribed. However, the in the last three decades research has consistently challenged and eroded the PSB model with profound implications to manual and physical therapies.
This lecture will examine the chasm between research and the PSB model, using lower back pain as an example. It will introduce the participants to a Process Approach model which aim to heal that widening gap.
 
     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"..
