The new evaluation and therapy concept for the peripheral nerves by Jean-Pierre Barral and Alain Croibier is introduced for the first time in this book. Disorders of the plexus and nerves which cause dysfunctions are described in a practical and detailed way from anatomic, physiological and pathological points of view.
Examination and treatment techniques are described step by step and clarified with a multitude of photographs and illustrations. This book offers all osteopaths and other manual therapists the perfect guide to putting this new therapy concept into practice.
BOOK - New Manual Articular Approach; Lower Extremity
This comprehensive book offers innovative and original techniques for acute and chronic conditions of the lower limb. It is richly illustrated with drawings and photographs. The book presents novel techniques that are simple, precise, and not at all forceful.
BOOK - New Manual Articular Approach; Cervical Spine
This comprehensive book explores the "hidden" imperatives that influence vertebral biomechanics. With an innovative approach, the authors apply their systems model of the vertebral column to the complexities of the cervical spine. Original manual therapy techniques are presented and richly illustrated with drawings and photographs.
BOOK - Advanced Visceral Manipulation; Neuroendocrine Approach to the Abdomen presents a global approach to dysfunctions of the abdomen, with innovative considerations as to how practitioners can have an influence on the neuroendocrine system. The focus is on Visceral Manipulation techniques that work with the neuroendocrine system, together with their effects on the abdomen and implications for the lower extremities.
BOOK - Since the time of Hippocrates, medical practitioners have noted the clinical significance of temperature changes found over different parts of the body. In Manual Thermal Evaluation Jean-Pierre Barral brings this form of diagnosis into the new millennium.
BOOK - From Manual Evaluation to General Diagnosis presents a comprehensive guide to osteopathic evaluation before hands-on treatment. Based on Croibier's clinical experience, it provides an extensive educational framework for the examination of patients to determine the course of treatment.
BOOK - This well-researched, richly illustrated book begins with an overview of the biomechanics of trauma. The authors demonstrate how an osteopathic-based mechanical approach to trauma can be applied to the entire body, with a special focus on the phenomenon of whiplash. From here they move on to a functional-anatomical approach, focusing on the skull and other aspects of the central nervous system, as well as the structures that surround and protect it. Finally, they view trauma from the perspective of how it affects the different tissues and systems of the body, including the osteoarticular, visceral, and vascular systems, and the various sequelae that can occur in each of these systems.
