This is an instructional guidebook on the application of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) techniques on the pediatric patient population. The text is organized by body region, with a focus on the neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions that most commonly affect children.
Each chapter discusses the clinical presentation of the condition and an OMT technique that can be integrated into the treatment plan. Anatomical illustrations, diagrams and radiographic images are included as visual aids.
This resource is most suitable for practitioners with an established background in OMT that wish to apply those skills towards the treatment of pediatric patients.
