A Practical Handbook

By Nicette Sergueef, DO, Associate Professor, Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, Midwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA

Summary

This is a practical ‘how to’ handbook for osteopathic students and practitioners. The approach is based upon cranial osteopathic principles and provides the application of indirect, functional osteopathic manipulative methods for treating infants and children. This well written, beautifully illustrated and thoroughly researched and referenced text provides the reader with an extensive description and understanding of the embryology and anatomy that underlies the distinctive osteopathic concept of somatic dysfunction. Fundamental information about the diagnosis of somatic dysfunction and application of treatment is presented in a clear, straightforward style and illustrated by extensive line drawings and photographs. Nicette Sergueef’s approach is a whole body functional approach employing the concepts of Cranial Osteopathy. This book is a must for every serious osteopath. It provides clinical insights and information that will be of great use to even the most experienced practitioner, yet it is written in a simple and concise manner, making it readily understandable by beginning students of Osteopathy.
