Product Description


This book is intended as a manual for students and practising osteopaths and physical therapists interested in exploring the principles, objectives, origins and application of the 5 osteopathic models - biomechanical, neurological, respiratory-circulatory, metabolic and behavioural - from traditional concepts to a modern vision based on evidence and critical thinking. Understanding and application of these conceptual models of the relationship between structure and function enables the therapist to evaluate treatment with the aim of promoting health rather than treating disease.
