For the first time, a 60-person team of internationally renowned editors and authors presents a textbook of osteopathic medicine that is oriented towards clinical symptoms. Introductory chapters on history, philosophy and the spread of osteopathy are followed by a presentation of its scientific basis that clearly demonstrates how firmly osteopathy is rooted in science. Further chapters cover osteopathic research, diagnosis and principles of treatment. Two parts on therapeutic strategies in osteopathic practice form the core of this book. The first is divided into regions of the body, the second into clinical specialties that offer opportunities for osteopathic treatment. In both clinical parts, osteopathic therapy is presented in the entirety in which it is actually practiced - without the common but artificial separation of parietal, visceral and craniosacral treatment. First, the clinical symptom is explained from a medical perspective, then the osteopathic perspective and and treatment is presented. Thus, the title is not only suitable for conveying a profound understanding of osteopaths in training, be they doctors or non-medical practitioners, but also as a clinical reference of osteopathic medicine for everyday treatment.

The new edition of this popular book continues to present the latest scientific evidence for the successful use of the high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust technique. Prepared in a readily accessible, amply illustrated format, this book is designed to equip practitioners with a detailed understanding of the underlying basis of the HVLA thrust technique and the best means to safely employ it in the effective management of a range of disorders of the spine and pelvic regions. The book is arranged in three sections to maximise understanding of what can be challenging areas to comprehend and effectively manage. Section One explores the biomechanics of movement and forces between adjacent vertebrae followed by a discussion of positioning and locking . These chapters are then followed by a discussion about safety with particular reference to the management of the cervical spine. A chapter on evidence and what represents good medical evidence concludes. Section Two presents using an ample array of clear photographs and useful summary boxes over 40 HVLA techniques ranging from the atlanto-occipital joint (C0-C1) to the coccyx. Section Three concludes with treatment failures (often, technique derived) and analysis. Prepared by authors of international renown - and now with an associated website containing over 45 minutes of useful film footage - this book will be ideal for all manual therapy practitioners dealing with the management of the spine and pelvic areas. Presents the scientific basis of the HVLA thrust one of the oldest and most commonly used manipulative techniques available Provides an accessible synthesis of the latest evidence for the effective use of the HVLA thrust Clearly explains coupled motion and describes the latest scientific research in this area Presents over 250 photographs, and 60 minutes of film on an associated website Contains a detailed discussion regarding patient safety Presents a comprehensive discussion surrounding treatment failures Well illustrated and clearly written for easy understanding Advises readers with regards to safe patient selection particularly important for the management of the cervical spine Suitable for both the novice and expert readerships "

"Osteopathy and other systems of manual medicine have developed a variety of models for understanding the mechanics of proper and improper motion of the musculoskeletal system. In this important and pioneering work, that same structural vision is applied to the visceral system. The central premise of 'Visceral Manipulation' is that the interrelationship of structure and function among the internal organs is at least as strong as that among the constituents of the musculoskeletal system; and that, like the musculoskeletal system, manipulation of the viscera can be beneficially used in the treatment of a wide variety of problems affecting any of the body's systems."--Publisher description.

This text is divided into sections in order to present an osteopathic approach to dysfunction manifesting in a particular system pertinent to a common clinical presentation. The divisions are grouped by their common autonomic and lymphatic elements. The purpose of the book is to explore selected structural and functional consideration which may produce symptoms or compromise homeostasis. It also demonstrates, by example, clinical application of the osteopathic philosophy in selected situation. Lastly, it attempts to show where osteopathic manipulative treatments can be prescribed as primary or adjunctive modalities available to the DO as they assist patients in reaching their maximum health potential.

Connective tissue release, or myofascial release, is a major component of manual therapies, including osteopathic medicine. Most methods involve placing the patient in a passive, relaxed position for diagnosis and treatment. However, many practitioners have intuitively sensed that rhythmic motion should be a component of therapy, and increasingly include it in their practice. Harmonic Healing introduces such an application of connective tissue principles, which author Dr. Zachary Comeaux calls Facilitated Oscillatory Release (FOR). The book reviews the role of oscillatory or vibratory work as an extension of other connective tissue techniques, explains the relevant physiology and the principles of wave propagation in tissue, and then provides illustrated introductory exercises, applications, and case studies. Building on the work of his mentor, Robert Fulford, to get more deeply into the core of patients’ injuries, Dr. Comeaux presents FOR as a lens through which to reinterpret the strategic use of force in manual therapy, including osteopathic manipulation. Based on both his clinical experience and neurophysiology principles, the author develops practical applications of these principles. These methods are compatible with generally accepted manual methods, and Harmonic Healing shows students, advanced practitioners, bodyworkers, and osteopaths how to integrate FOR into a variety of manual healing approaches.
