First published in Germany in 2003, this English translation of Visceral Manipulation in Osteopathy is a precise and easy-to-digest manual on osteopathic visceral palpation and manipulation of the internal organs. Author and well-known European osteopathic physician, Eric Hebgen, DO, incorporates the manipulative treatment techniques and reflex medicine concepts of previous osteopathic doctors, including founder Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, into this comprehensive resource.
Internal organs are a part of the mechanics of the body because they are anatomically attached to the locomotor system. Thus, a disorder in an organ can affect the biomechanics of another body part, leading to osteopathic dysfunction. In this must-have, illustrated guide, Dr. Hebgen provides a detailed description of the four most common osteopathic manual medicine (OMM)-based approaches for treating abdominal disorders.
