Osteopathic medical students and faculty benefit from a uniquely practical text that organizes osteopathic concepts and step-by-step techniques into a single comprehensive volume. This new edition includes new, all-important updates on somatic and visceral problems, writing the osteopathic manipulative prescription, and case histories to reflect changes in the national licensing examination. The book’s integrated method for diagnosis and treatment embraces basic osteopathic history and philosophy, osteopathic palpation and manipulation, and specific manipulative treatments and concepts. Abundant photographs demonstrate step-by-step techniques. Meticulous illustrations depict underlying anatomy.
