Produktinformationen "Bone – The Best Kept Secret (2.A.)"


Bone-The Best-Kept Secret
offers the osteopathic practitioner a completely different perspective on the osteopathic profession. Osteopathy’s founder, Andrew Taylor Still, focused on the bone and fascia in his approach and philosophy. Still’s position was later clarified by Michael Lane, who defined the three basic osteopathic axioms.

Extensive research on bone’s physiology and mechanical properties confirms that Still’s ideas are completely in line with the current state of knowledge. Bone evolves from a passive participant in movement to an erythropoietic organ, an endocrinal gland, an interactive mineral deposit, a conspicuous tension regulator and a force transmitter. In a nutshell: bone is the most specialized and powerful fascia of our body.

Taking these insights into consideration, bone’s therapeutic characteristics spark new interest. Jo Buekens presents bone-related, easy-to-follow procedures for a novel osteopathic approach to treatment. A special selection of well-chosen anatomic pictures, including precise and clear technique photographs and drawings illustrate and guide the passionate reader through the proposed methods and procedures described in the text.

The book offers schematic overviews, functional anatomic analysis, initiation in applied embryology, and elaborate examples and incentives to encourage the reader to think beyond anatomo-pathologic procedures. This book is written to enhances the practitioner’s vision on how to deal with bone, while providing much “food for thought.”
