An Osteopathic Approach to Children provides an in-depth look at osteopathic medicine as it applies to the pediatric population, with a focus on a holistic approach to patient evaluation and management. 

The first part of this book discusses normal physiology and body system development, while the second half presents pathophysiology and common pediatric disease processes. With each disease presented, the basis for considering an osteopathic-based approach to management is discussed. 

This book serves as an important resource for medical students, residents, and physicians interested in implementing osteopathic philosophy and technique to the practice of pediatric medicine.
