Best of visceral manipulation -- key concepts at a glance

Written by one of the best-known European osteopaths, Visceral Manipulation in Osteopathy explains how to successfully apply the four most common approaches for the manual treatment of abdominal disorders.

The first section provides an overview of the basic principles and techniques of diagnosis and treatment from the greats of osteopathy: visceral manipulation according to Barral; fascial treatment of the organs according to Finet and Williame; circulatory techniques according to Kuchera; and reflex point treatment according to Chapman. Organized by the individual organs, the second section contains "action" photographs that demonstrate osteopathic tests and treatment techniques, plus in-depth information on anatomy, physiology, and pathology.

Features:

  • Over 160 clear, marked-up "action" photographs illustrate the different techniques
  • Additional graphics display the macroscopic anatomy and topography of the organs
  • Practical tips and notes are highlighted throughout for rapid access and quick review
  • Organ-tooth interrelationships are demonstrated

Practitioners of osteopathy, physical therapy, or chiropractic will refer to this indispensable clinical guide on a daily basis. The book's breadth and clarity also make it ideal as a textbook for students of visceral manipulation.

"This is an interesting and inclusive book which may find a new audience here in the U.S." - Doody's
