The Pocket Manual of OMT is a practical, concise clinical reference for physicians and osteopathic medical students learning and using manipulative diagnosis and treatment techniques. The book's organization by body region enables readers to select appropriate treatments for specific diseases. For each technique, the book provides indications, contraindications, a stepwise description, and a photograph.
This edition presents 43 new techniques, including seated facet release and inherent motion diagnosis and treatment techniques. Updated and expanded descriptions of osteopathic principles are complemented by new illustrations and clinical correlations. Exercises that clinicians can prescribe to patients appear after the appropriate treatments.
A companion website offers the fully searchable text; online case studies with COMLEX-style multiple-choice questions for each chapter; and 250 instructional technique videos.
