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 Osteopathy Book Review:

Visceral Osteopathy: The Peritoneal Organs is concerned with the application of osteopathic concepts to the abdominal viscera, specifically the organs of the gastrointestinal tract. It lays out a comprehensive manual approach to these viscera based on physiological research and extensive clinical experience. The visceral paradigm developed in this book is centered on the mechanical expression of the biological forces within the organs themselves. In this paradigm, the most important aspect of the viscera of the gut is their intrinsic, autonomous regulation. The focus is therefore on the inner mechanical architecture and power centers of the viscera.Visceral Osteopathy offers a comprehensive and clinically sound system of diagnosis and treatment of the digestive organs, and firmly establishes visceral manipulation in the context of contemporary physiological research. The diagnostic and therapeutic approaches of visceral osteopathy are described in detail and are accompanied by hundreds of photographs and drawings that clearly illustrate each of the techniques, including an original bi-manual form of palpation for all the viscera. A separate chapter is devoted to each of the peritoneal organs.Other features of the book: - Provides concise, up-to-date applied anatomy.- Includes extensive and well-illustrated descriptions of embryology and its significance in manipulation of the viscera.- Discusses all major concepts in visceral manipulation and compares different schools of thought.- Develops the idea of movement as compensation and discusses the benefit of different types of visceral movement.- Draws an important and useful distinction between intravisceral treatment and indirectly working on the viscera via the fasciae.- Offers practical tools to differentiate movements according to normal or compensatory activity. - Looks at the inherent stability of viscera in relation to posture.- Outlines how visceral problems influence the musculoskeletal and craniosacral systems.- Provides a glossary of all important terms used in this and other books on visceral manipulation, and an extensive bibliography.

This book is intended as a manual for students and practising osteopaths and physical therapists interested in exploring the principles, objectives, origins and application of the 5 osteopathic models - biomechanical, neurological, respiratory-circulatory, metabolic and behavioural - from traditional concepts to a modern vision based on evidence and critical thinking. Understanding and application of these conceptual models of the relationship between structure and function enables the therapist to evaluate treatment with the aim of promoting health rather than treating disease.

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.
