From the Publisher“This is a very interesting book that provokes thought and gives depth to practising osteopathy….well worth a read.”
Osteopathic Medicine: Philosophy, Priciples and Practice, is the first textbook on osteopathic medicine to complement the dominant 'medical' model of education. Drawing from the achievements and ideas of the pa st as well as present-day practice, it provides an organic yet scienti fic approach which is uniquely osteopathic and shows how true osteopat hy is a philosophy, leading to principles and ultimately to a unique f orm of treatment. This style of thinking brings the philosophy, princi ples and clinical practice to life for the student and qualified pract itioner.
