Format: Hardcover
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.
