For the first time, a 60-person team of internationally renowned editors and authors presents a textbook of osteopathic medicine that is oriented towards clinical symptoms. Introductory chapters on history, philosophy and the spread of osteopathy are followed by a presentation of its scientific basis that clearly demonstrates how firmly osteopathy is rooted in science. Further chapters cover osteopathic research, diagnosis and principles of treatment. Two parts on therapeutic strategies in osteopathic practice form the core of this book. The first is divided into regions of the body, the second into clinical specialties that offer opportunities for osteopathic treatment. In both clinical parts, osteopathic therapy is presented in the entirety in which it is actually practiced - without the common but artificial separation of parietal, visceral and craniosacral treatment. First, the clinical symptom is explained from a medical perspective, then the osteopathic perspective and and treatment is presented. Thus, the title is not only suitable for conveying a profound understanding of osteopaths in training, be they doctors or non-medical practitioners, but also as a clinical reference of osteopathic medicine for everyday treatment.
Thoroughly revised for its Third Edition, "Foundations of Osteopathic Medicine" is the most comprehensive, current osteopathic text. This edition features expanded coverage of international practice and includes a new chapter on the structure of the profession.
This is the first textbook on osteopathic medicine to complement the dominant 'medical' model of education. Drawing from the achievements and ideas of the past as well as present-day practice, it provides an organic yet scientific approach that is uniquely osteopathic. Using the work of its founder, Dr Andrew Taylor Still, and the philosophy of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, McKone shows how true osteopathy is a philosophy, leading to principles and ultimately to a unique form of treatment. This style of thinking brings the philosophy, principles and clinical practice to life for the student and qualified practitioner. Anatomy, physiology, signs and symptoms all merge at the point of treatment. Students and practitioners will find this book invaluable as it will allow them to bring together all their osteopathic training into a coherent osteopathic system of practice. Walter Llewellyn McKone is an author, lecturer and practitioner in osteopathic medicine. This includes the osteopathic areas of health care, sports medicine, manipulative medicine and child care at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He is a member of the National Athletic Trainers' Association (US), American Academy of Psychology, Scientific and Medical Network (UK), Geologists' Association (UK) and is a researcher in Goethian centred medicine.
