Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This atlas is an update of a compendium of descriptions of how to perform osteopathic manipulative therapy techniques. The previous edition was published in 1974.
Purpose: It emphasizes what is new in the approach to patients and serves as a refresher for those who wish to brush up on their technical abilities. The authors are two of the most well known osteopathic physicians at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. The book is well done with full color photos demonstrating the techniques.
Audience: This is an excellent reference for anyone interested in osteopathic manipulative therapy, students and attending physicians alike.
Features: The book is divided into areas on how to perform the techniques and how to use the techniques on the various parts of the body. The color photos are very well done. The book lists an online version with technique videos which would add to the value of this book, since osteopathic manipulative therapy involves movements through different axes that cannot be adequately displayed in photos alone. Unfortunately, I was unable to access the videos, but this is not a problem with the book, but rather with the publisher's website.
Assessment: Overall, this very useful book explains the techniques in clear terms, complemented by photos and, hopefully, the videos.
