This quick reference guidebook is designed to help physicians who are not osteopathic medicine specialists incorporate osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) techniques into their patient treatment plan. The pocket-sized book is an efficient and effective resource for the physician to reference during time-constrained office visits.

The osteopathic clinical manual is organized by diagnoses, with a two-page format for each disease. The first page includes key information about the disease and the second page contains suggested OMT techniques for the disease.

This book is best used following patient assessment and in conjunction with standard medical treatment of the diagnosis.
