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 - 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.
