Osteopathy for the Over 50s: Maintaining Function and Treating Dysfunction

$121.50

Although textbooks on the subject of Osteopathy have been in print for over 100 years, there is little material specifically addressing the treatment of adults over the age of 50, in spite of the increase in this demographic group.

This book is intended to provide a study of the biomechanics and physiology of somatic dysfunction as it relates to individuals over the age of 50.

Practitioners require information about the diagnosis of somatic dysfunction and application of osteopathic manipulative treatment specifically as it relates to this age group – and this is where this book is invaluable.

The main body of the text considers the relevance of somatic function and dysfunction in multiple clinical areas including cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, urology, neurology and rheumatology.

The diagnostic approach to the patient over the age of 50 and osteopathic manipulative treatment is thoroughly described. This book provides information on the biomechanics and physiology of somatic dysfunction for the osteopathic treatment of older adults in a thorough, yet easy to approach fashion.
