 Descriptive

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 for practitioners of osteopathy and osteopathic medicine.

Descritif

Bien que depuis plus de 100 ans, des manuels abordant le sujet de l'ostéopathie ont été publiés, il ya peu de livres portant spécifiquement sur l'approche ostéopathique des adultes de plus de 50 ans, en dépit de la progression de ce groupe démographique. Ce livre propose une étude de la biomécanique et de la physiologie de la dysfonction somatique chez les personnes de plus de 50 ans. Tout praticien a besoin d'informations spécifiques pour le diagnostic de la dysfonction somatique et l'application du traitement ostéopathique, en particulier chez les patients de plus de 50 ans - et c'est là que ce livre est inestimable. L'essentiel de cet ouvrage considère la pertinence de la fonction et de la dysfonction somatique dans des domaines cliniques multiples, y compris la cardiologie, la pneumologie, la gastro-entérologie, l'urologie, la neurologie et la rhumatologie. La démarche diagnostique et le traitement ostéopathique chez le patient âgé de plus de 50 ans sont décrits en détail. Ce livre fournit des informations approfondies, toutefois faciles à aborder, sur la biomécanique et la physiologie de la dysfonction somatique, et de son traitement ostéopathique, informations nécessaires pour tous ceux qui pratiquent l'ostéopathie et la médecine ostéopathique.
