This practical, concise, must-have handbook by faculty in the Department of Osteopathic Principles and Practice at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine will assist physicians, therapists and other practitioners, and medical students in applying manipulative treatment techniques for common problems encountered in primary care practice. For each technique, the book provides indications, contraindications, stepwise description of the technique, and an accompanying photograph—a total of over 350 photographs. Newer OMT techniques, including percussion vibrator and facilitated oscillatory release, are included for each region of the body. Exercises derived from the structural exam and OMT appear at the end of each chapter. The index allows look-up by syndrome, modality, or body region.
