SFIMMS Series in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine
AUTHORS: Harry Friedman D.O.; Wolfgang Gilliar D.O.; Jerel Glassman D.O.
 

Osteopathic approaches to patient care offer the practitioner a variety of problem-solving and treatment options. Palpatory skill development establishes a basis for diagnostic assessment of neuromusculoskeletal function and its integrative role in maintaining health and overcoming disease. Osteopathic treatment and problem-solving skills apply a holistic approach that considers the therapeutic response of the whole patient. A variety of diagnostic and treatment methods have been developed to maximize outcomes.

This series of Osteopathic manipulative medicine texts presents a comprehensive course of instruction, including theory, palpation, diagnosis, and treatment. The thoughtful student will appreciate the detail and clarity of topic presentation and the sequence of skills development. Quality close-up photographic visuals accurately depict the table sessions using human and anatomic models. The following three volumes of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine are currently available for spring 2000 delivery.
