Book Description

19 Feb 2003 0443063605 978-0443063602
Effective and non-invasive, osteopathic techniques are being used increasingly in the treatment of children. This evidence-based, fully referenced text offers a wealth of information on the use of osteopathic techniques for pediatric disorders - from newborns to toddlers, and children to adolescents. It discusses normal development, physiology, and anatomy of the systems, and it explores conditions and diseases of childhood and the rationale for osteopathic treatment. Practical and comprehensive, it offers an osteopathic approach to understanding the development of the cranium; the interrelatedness of posture, movement, and cognition; and the process of labor and birth. It also discusses physiology, anatomy, function, and dysfunction for several areas - ophthalmology, the gastrointestinal system, the respiratory system, and otolaryngology.

An Osteopathic Approach to Children
Jane Carreiro
Churchill Livingstone/Elsevier
ISBN: 987 0 443 06738 9

If you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, then perhaps you should judge it by its preface. In the preface of Carriero's book she suggests;

`This book emphasizes the contribution of the neuromusculoskeletal system to health and disease, and as an extension to that, focuses on the role of manipulative treatment. However, the art of osteopathic medicine includes the ability to intuit the unspoken, be it emotional, cultural, psychological or spiritual that holds importance for the patient or family. It is the job of the physician to integrate these subtle and sometimes vague pieces of information, which the patient and his or her body are providing, with that which is scientifically known and understood. One type of information does not negate or diminish the value of the other. They dovetail to provide a more complete, a more unified picture of the individual. This book is an attempt to do just that'.

An Osteopathic Approach to Children presents a comprehensive overview of pediatric medicine from an osteopathic perspective. The existing reference textbooks of medical pediatrics and physical therapy may address selected orthopedic problems in children, but they are limited in scope by failing to include an holistic perspective. An Osteopathic Approach to Children has been written to remedy this situation, and does so clearly and with an excellent editorial overview. With the arrival of the 2ndedition, the topics covered are thoroughly updated to provide a comprehensive textbook and reference source, which deals specifically with the osteopathic treatment of children.
