Presenter: Eyal Lederman
In the last two decades, core stability training has dominated exercise and movement rehabilitation practices. Despite its popularity, core stability has failed to deliver the benefits that were attributed to it. In this webinar, Eyal Lederman will discuss the problems with core stability principles and why this approach was doomed to fail as a therapeutic tool and a method for improving human performance. He will present an alternative; a science-based osteopathic functional exercise approach.

He is the director of CPDO, an international centre providing continuing professional development for manual and physical therapists.
