Osteopathy and Obstetrics Book Review:

Some practitioners hesitate to be involved with manipulation techniques and pregnancy. "Osteopathy and Obstetrics" demonstrates that there is no scientific evidence to support such fears.During a pregnancy the patient is going to change both anatomically and physiologically in every part of her body. The obvious signs of this change include growth of the abdomen, change of shape of the spine and pelvis and the growth of the breast tissue. What is not so obvious are the changes to the cardiothoracic system, the gastrointestinal system and the renal system. Changes to the reproductive system are obvious only at the end of the pregnancy. Osteopathic practitioners with their structural, cranio-sacral, myofascial and visceral techniques are uniquely placed to facilitate these changes.This book looks at each body system, discovers the way that the system changes, and then suggests and demonstrates specific osteopathic techniques and diagnostic methods to allow the practitioner and student to practise obstetric osteopathy efficiently. Each section contains up to date references so that science-based medical principles are respected and followed. Safety issues are constantly emphasised so that the treatment experience is a pleasant and successful one for both patient and practitioner. The book is divided into sections dealing above the diaphragm, below the diaphragm, and in the pelvis. Each section is illustrated by photographs and supported by text boxes and line diagrams. The author is a practicing osteopath and has 30 years experience of teaching osteopathy and obstetrics. In 1980 he set up the first clinic to treat expectant mothers at the British School of Osteopathy . He has written this book to satisfy the demand of student osteopaths and mature practitioners wherever osteopathy is taught and practised.IntroductionChapter One :The Physiology of the female hormones during pregnancyChapter Two: Above the DiaphragmChapter Three: Treatment techniques for the cervical and thoracic spine, ribs, diaphragm and mediastinum during pregnancy .Chapter Four: Below The DiaphragmChapter Five: Treatment techniques below the diaphragm during pregnancyChapter Six: The Pelvis and lumbar spineChapter Seven: Treatment techniques below the pelvis and lumbar spine during pregnancyChapter Eight: The Pregnancy generalities regarding pregnancy and the Osteopathic Evaluation of pregnancyKEY POINTSFirst textbook on osteopathy for 5 yearsOutstanding expert author/practitionerWorldwide appeal

Visceral Manipulation Book Review:

"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.

Mechanical Link Book Review:

Developed in the late ’70s by French osteopath Paul Chauffour, Mechanical Link is a gentle manual therapy that encourages the balance of tensions in the fascial system—that complex web of tissue that interconnects and affects all other body systems. It spreads throughout the body uninterrupted, providing physical stability while also allowing flexibility and mobility. Based on the principle that traumatic stress affects the interconnecting tissues of the body by forming patterns of tension called lesions, Mechanical Link therapy has successfully treated fibromyalgia, migraines, asthma, and other conditions. Extremely popular in Europe, it is rapidly gaining adherents in North America. This book, complete with 44 black-and-white photographs and 20 color illustrations, is a comprehensive manual for diagnosing and treating patients. Mechanical Link therapy is guided by the body’s own wisdom about its unique needs. The work stimulates to the body’s self-corrective responses, promoting normal mobility, tissue tone and posture. Mechanical Link brings tension into equilibrium and allows the body to return to optimal functioning ability, so all its systems can improve—including the immune system. Mechanical Link helps alleviate a range of illness, pain and dysfunction, including: •Fibromyalgia •Indigestion •Migraine Headaches •Premenstrual Syndrome •Asthma •Chronic Fatigue •Motor-Coordination •Impairments •Chronic Neck and Back Pain •Central Nervous System •Disorders •Emotional Difficulties •Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ) •Stress and Tension-Related Problems •Orthopedic Problems
