Product Description

Osteopathy for the Over 50s – Monitoring Function & Healing Dysfunction By Nicette Sergueef and Kenneth Nelson

This highly illustrated book will be invaluable in providing osteopaths with the information they require about the diagnosis of somatic dysfunction and application of osteopathic manipulative treatment unique within this age group. It is practically oriented and offers comprehensive, evidence-based coverage of:
somatic function and dysfunction in multiple clinical areas including cardiology, pulmonology, gastro-enterology, urology, neurology and rheumatology
the diagnostic approach to the patient over the age of 50
osteopathic manipulative treatment for this age group.

So many people are under the misconception that osteopathic principles apply to musculoskeletal aches and pain such as bad backs and headaches. The purpose of this book is to look at the integration of the diagnosis and treatment of the somatic component into the entire spectrum of patient care.’ Kenneth Nelson
‘With the aging of populations in the industrial world, the appearance of this most relevant text, the only one of its kind, is timely, indeed.’ Thomas Glonek PhD
