An Osteopathic Approach to Children



An Osteopathic Approach to Children
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.
