An Osteopathic Approach to Children book cover

An Osteopathic Approach to Children

This evidence-based, fully referenced text offers a wealth of information on the use of osteopathic techniques for pediatric disorders -- from newborns to adolescents. It discusses normal development, physiology, and anatomy of the systems, and it explores conditions and diseases of childhood as well as 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.
