Textbook Osteopathic Medicine

Author: Mayer
Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences
ISBN: 9780702052668
Release Date: 2017-12-06
Genre: Medical

For the first time, a 60-person team of internationally renowned editors and authors presents a textbook of osteopathic medicine that is oriented towards clinical symptoms. Introductory chapters on history, philosophy and the spread of osteopathy are followed by a presentation of its scientific basis that clearly demonstrates how firmly osteopathy is rooted in science. Further chapters cover osteopathic research, diagnosis and principles of treatment. Two parts on therapeutic strategies in osteopathic practice form the core of this book. The first is divided into regions of the body, the second into clinical specialties that offer opportunities for osteopathic treatment. In both clinical parts, osteopathic therapy is presented in the entirety in which it is actually practiced - without the common but artificial separation of parietal, visceral and craniosacral treatment. First, the clinical symptom is explained from a medical perspective, then the osteopathic perspective and and treatment is presented. Thus, the title is not only suitable for conveying a profound understanding of osteopaths in training, be they doctors or non-medical practitioners, but also as a clinical reference of osteopathic medicine for everyday treatment.

Osteopathy and Nutrition for Managing the Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Author: Rita Lombardini

Genre: Medical

Gastrointestinal tract dysfunction such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common intestinal complaints that prompts an individual to consult a doctor. However, ambiguities in defining it and slow accumulation of evidence on the benefits of treatment have made this syndrome notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat. Our goal has been to prepare a text that provide an overview of IBS and the main concepts and practice of osteopathy and nutrition. The result is a book, which presents IBS management using OMT, dietary modifications, and nutritional supplements according to current evidence-based literature. We have also added some appendices on practical applications which might then serve as a simple treatment plan for a broad range of healthcare professionals including osteopaths, physiotherapists, manual therapists, sports science graduates, massage and bodywork therapists and nutritionists, to reduce the chronic pain and inflammation that are associated with IBS.

I cinque modelli osteopatici

Genre: Medical

Ben lungi dall’essere una mera sequenza di tecniche, l’osteopatia è una medicina autonoma, strutturata, basata su principi applicati attraverso una pratica manuale: una professione unica che prende in cura la persona, grazie all’applicazione di cinque modelli applicativi (biomeccanico, neurologico, respiratorio-circolatorio, metabolico-energetico, biopsicosociale). Sono modelli concettuali di rapporto tra struttura e funzione, cinque forze di attivazione fisiologica su cui gli osteopati possono agire sia in fase di valutazione che di trattamento, al fine di promuovere la salute piuttosto che curare la malattia. Questo libro si propone come un manuale per studenti e professionisti osteopati, interessati a esplorare in profondità i cinque modelli osteopatici e i relativi principi, obiettivi, origini e applicazioni, partendo dai concetti tradizionali fino a una visione moderna, basata sulle evidenze e sul pensiero critico. I criteri di scelta e le modalità di applicazione di ciascun modello, con i rispettivi limiti e potenzialità, vengono esplorati a fondo per consentire al lettore di comprenderne il razionale di selezione e l’integrazione verso un approccio globale, olistico e paziente-centrico.

Author: Carl Beyer
Publisher: BS-Verlag-Rostock
ISBN: 9783867859783
Release Date: 2010-06-01
Genre: Fiction

Mit dem sicheren Griff, der Beyer unbestritten eine der ersten Stellen im historischen Roman gegeben hat, setzt er da ein, wo die Deutschen zum Kreuzzuge gegen die Wenden von dem Braunschweiger Heinrich dem Löwen angerufen sind, er tritt also aus der Lokalgeschichte völlig heraus und weckt das allgemeine deutsche Interesse für die behandelten Kämpfe, in denen die Wenden besiegt, aber nicht gebrochen werden. Aus dem Klappentext der siebenten Auflage Carl Beyer (1847-1923) studierte Theologie in Rostock und Erlangen, war Hauslehrer beim Grafen von Schulenburg in Tressow und von 1875 bis 1900 Pastor in Laage. 1921 wurde er Ehrenmitglied im Verein für mecklenburgische Geschichte und Altertumskunde und erhielt ein Jahr später die Ehrendoktorwürde der Universität Rostock. Sein schriftstellerisches Werk umfasst kulturhistorische Schriften, Volkserzählungen und historische Romane. Besonders bekannt sind Anastasia, Pribislav, Die alte Herzogin und Die Nonnen von Dobbertin.
