Five Osteopathic Models Book Excerpt:

This book is intended as a manual for students and practising osteopaths and physical therapists interested in exploring the principles, objectives, origins and application of the 5 osteopathic models - biomechanical, neurological, respiratory-circulatory, metabolic and behavioural - from traditional concepts to a modern vision based on evidence and critical thinking. Understanding and application of these conceptual models of the relationship between structure and function enables the therapist to evaluate treatment with the aim of promoting health rather than treating disease.

Osteopathy Book Excerpt:

This book is a textbook of basic osteopathic concepts, working from first principles underpinned by anatomy and physiology. This text will synthesize and integrate osteopathic models in an easy-to-understand way, a subject often daunting to students and confusing to graduates. Composed of four sections, the first is a discussion of basic principles, the second focusses on models and diagnosis of treatment which is followed by anatomical, neurophysiological and osteopathic considerations. The last section describes clinical case-studies to enable students to put into practice the theories and models which they have learned. This book is essential reading for all osteopathic BSc degree courses and a core textbook for undergraduate students. At the end of each section there will be clinical examples for students to work on to integrate previous knowledge. Key point boxes.

Positional Plagiocephaly Book Excerpt:

This book provides clear guidance on the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of positional plagiocephaly. Information is first presented on classification, epidemiology and etiopathogenesis. Diagnosis is then explained in detail, covering the significance of anamnestic data, physical examination, differential diagnosis, instrumental examinations and anthropometric measurements. Preventive measures such as “tummy time” and physiotherapy are described and the role of orthoses, osteopathy and surgery in treatment is closely examined. The closing chapter addresses prognosis and complications. Positional plagiocephaly is not only a "cosmetic" problem but can cause facial and mandibular asymmetry, visual disturbances and cognitive and psychomotor impairment, yet when correctly treated it usually resolves by 6-7 years of age. This book will be an ideal aid for pediatricians, neurosurgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons, orthopedic physicians, physiotherapists and for all involved in preventing and managing the condition.

Integrative Pain Management Book Excerpt:

his text blends current mainstream understanding (such as research, and pathophysiology) of chronic pain and integrative treatment wisdom. It provides both mainstream and CAM practitioners a reference tool to provide good and effective information and clinical decision-making on treatment options for people suffering from chronic pain. The how and why pain is epidemic is discussed. The approach is on the symptoms of pain, and how pain is individually expressed rather than the diagnoses of pain. Diagnoses are often misidentified, misunderstood, or multiple terms exist for a similar or potentially the same condition. To avoid this, the text will instead talk about expressions of pain. Pain anatomy presents the physical underpinnings for the chemical/hormonal, neurological, and soft tissue/fibrotic tissue explanations of pain. In the book visuals and diagrams will help the reader understand the function and dysfunction of pain. The material is grounded in research, providing basic reasoning for the body-based and mind-body approaches as it pertains to the theoretical constructs.The pedagogy is introduced, outlining the relationship between CAM and allopathic healthcare, and patient-centered therapeutic approaches as the frame for clinical decision-making. A variety of movement modalities and mind-body approaches are discussed and each chapter will include: a. Theoretical approach to treating pain/how the approach addresses current pain theories b. Assessment techniques: interview questions, measurement tools and techniques c. Treatment plan, techniques, modalities d. Self-care approaches e. Re-evaluation, measure of progress f.

Osteopathy and Nutrition for Managing the Irritable Bowel Syndrome Book Excerpt:

Gastrointestinal tract dysfunction such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common intestinal complaints that prompts an individual to consult a doctor. However, ambiguities in defining it and slow accumulation of evidence on the benefits of treatment have made this syndrome notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat. Our goal has been to prepare a text that provide an overview of IBS and the main concepts and practice of osteopathy and nutrition. The result is a book, which presents IBS management using OMT, dietary modifications, and nutritional supplements according to current evidence-based literature. We have also added some appendices on practical applications which might then serve as a simple treatment plan for a broad range of healthcare professionals including osteopaths, physiotherapists, manual therapists, sports science graduates, massage and bodywork therapists and nutritionists, to reduce the chronic pain and inflammation that are associated with IBS.

Originally published as a single volume, The Heart of Listening has been re-issued as two separate volumes because of public demand for a more concise, portable edition.

In the second volume, Milne details the anatomy, physiology, energetics, and techniques that are the essential core of visionary craniosacral work. His particular genius lies in his ability to weave a delicate tapestry of narrative, poetry, and scientific fact into a fascinating and insightful exposition of the visionary healing arts.
