An Osteopathic Approach to Children presents a comprehensive general overview of pediatric medicine from an osteopathic perspective. The book is divided into two main parts. The first part discusses the normal development, physiology and anatomy of the body systems from birth to adulthood. The second part explores the conditions and diseases of childhood and outlines the rationale for osteopathic treatment for each disorder. Also, it presents clinical problems from the perspective of the interrelatedness of structure and function. This unique approach will make it an invaluable source of reference for all those interested in using an osteopathic approach to the treatment of children in their care.
