Publisher Description

Based on Dr. Croibier's everyday clinical experience, this book provides critical tools for examining patients in order to determine what the course of treatment should be. Written for manual hands-on therapy students and practitioners that include osteopaths, physical therapists, and chiropractors, the book explores in depth the osteopathic diagnosis process that aims to identify an abnormality and to discover factors that may be causing the dysfunction. rawing a comparison between diagnosis in classical medicine and osteopathy, Dr. Croibier explains that the osteopath focuses on restoring the conditions of good health rather than simply addressing the consequences of disease. Enhanced with more than 175 full-color instructional photos and illustrations, the book describes the manual hands-on assessments and general evaluations that lead to a diagnosis. Manual assessments include objective observation, diagnostic touch, palpation of the affected areas of the body, visualization, and ""listening"" (a hand placed on a specific part of the body to determine tissue functionality).

Review

"The value of a therapeutic treatment depends as much on a precise evaluation as on specific hands-on techniques. One without the other facilitates fleeting results. Through Croibier's book the practitioner will learn a solid scientific and technical grounding for the evaluation process, thereby being more fully able to devise a truly individualized treatment plan for achieving the best possible outcome." --John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, founder and president of the Upledger Institute "This book is highly recommended for introducing and developing a clinical reasoning and problem-solving basis for manual therapy. The beauty of the book is in its ability to bridge the art of bodywork with the science of Western medicine. The importance is in its focus on improving communication skills with other practitioners and patients." --Thomas K. Takeuchi Jr., DC

"The author has presented a wide-ranging array of approaches and techniques to create as complete a picture of the client as possible. ... From Manual Evaluation to General Diagnosis has a wealth of valuable information for any practitioner, and is a particularly valuable handbook for Rolfers and other manual practitioners." --Structural Integration
