Editorial Reviews

Joy H. Schwartz
This introductory text describes osteopathic principles and techniques as they relate to basic science and clinical medicine. The ten areas covered include osteopathic philosophy and history, basic sciences, behavioral sciences, clinical problem solving, family practice and primary care, clinical specialties, palpatory diagnosis and manipulative treatment, health restoration, and the applications of basic and clinical research for osteopathic theory and practice. A broad review of each area is provided with osteopathic principles integrated to demonstrate an osteopathic approach to patient care. The text is intended to illustrate the broad aspects of osteopathic medicine. It provides a multidisciplinary overview of osteopathic philosophy and principles as they apply to clinical practice, thus enhancing the osteopathic student and physician's understanding of the integration of visceral and somatic neural pathways. This text is appropriate for osteopathic medical students and osteopathic practitioners of any specialty. It will serve as an introduction and overview for students. The sections on osteopathic manipulative techniques will prove useful for practitioners, especially those who do not now use manipulation daily. The text provides excellent illustrations with diagrams and photographs of various techniques. The references are pertinent and current. The chapter organization and comprehensive index facilitate finding specific treatment modalities. This well-done review will prove useful to students and practitioners. Although not exhaustive, it provides a foundation for students and is successful at integrating osteopathic principles with all aspects of medicine. It is aworthwhile contribution to osteopathic medical education. It is suitable for purchase by medical school bookstores as well as students, residents, and practitioners.

    Poor...

    I'm not a big fan of anything in this text. I have turned to it numerous times to supplement lectures in our Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine course, and each and every time I close the book frustrated and more confused than when I started. The book seems more geared for practicing professionals who use OMM on at least a semi- daily basis. I'm a student, TRYING desperately to learn some of the OMM techniques (even though I don't agree or 'buy into' a lot of them) and this text does not help me. We have required readings from the text and I'm struggling to even finish half of what I'm supposed to have finished. Incidentally, one of the major contributors to the text is one of my course professors (not wonder it's required!).
