Book Description
The osteopathic profession has developed many treatment modalities and approaches to manipulation. Ligamentous articular strain is the name given by William G. Sutherland, D.O., the founder of cranial osteopathy, to a group of techniques that he used for treating the body outside the core axis of the craniosacral system. The term has since come to refer to a wide variety of techniques that engage the body's own healing mechanisms in a relatively direct manner.

For over thirty years the Dallas Osteopathic Study Group, originally under the tutelage of Rollin Becker, D.O., has been exploring this type of manipulation. Ligamentous Articular Strain is the distillation of their work. The introductory chapters address the historical development of this approach, and review some of its scientific underpinnings. The remaining chapters are devoted to an examination of the body, area by area, from the feet to the shoulders, describing and depicting effective manipulative techniques.

Ligamentous Articular Strain provides clear instructions and vivid illustrations which will enable the trained practitioner to quickly gain proficiency in these techniques. It also presents a cogent approach to working with the concepts of the key lesion and the bowstring, first developed by Rollin Becker.

Reader Reviews
Great practical book for osteopathic physicians., October 3, 1999
Reviewer: jennifer ravenscroft from West Virginia
This is a great practical book for the osteopathic physician. I use it frequently when caring for hospital patients. While it has sections on various types of diseases (upper respiratory, GI,etc.) Dr. Kuchera also has a basic outline on how to use osteopathy in any sort of disease state. This means you can take the basic philosophy and apply it in any situation. I highly recommend it to all osteopathic physicians and students of osteopathy.

Excellent text on Osteopathy in the field of visceral disease, March 21, 1998
Reviewer: An Customer
An excellent and very welcome text on the important role Osteopathy has to play in the treatment of visceral disease. By explaining the relationships between viscera and the Autonomic nervous system, the authors have been able to recommend an approach and treatment plan for many common visceral disorders. For any Osteopath who has a desire to explore the full power of Osteopathy and be confident in treating such conditions in their clinic, this book is a must.

Reader Review
WOW, just what the doctor ordered!, January 30, 2001
Reviewer: Sandy Duncan from Cambridge, MA USA
Osteopathic Medicine: A Reformation in Progress is a long overdue reference for those seeking accurate information about the history and development of the ostoepathic medical profession. It concisely reviews the historical foundations and evolution of osteopathic medicine from a frontier-based medical sect to a full-fledged social movement in American health care.

In a well-written and engaging style, the authors provide the reader with a critical appraisal of where the osteopathic medical profession has been, its past achievements and current challenges, as well as a clear course for its future development. It also explores the dimensions of osteopathic medical education and practice that distinguish DOs from their MD counterparts. The authors review the philosophical foundations that drive the unique osteopathic approach to patient care as well as a critical appraisal of efforts to incorporate osteopathic principles and practice into the broader infrastructure and science of total health care management.

This is book is highly recommended reading for all pre-medical students considering a career in osteopathic medicine, current osteopathic medical students and residents, as well as practicing physicians, and interested lay people. This book will also be of particular interest to medical educators and public health policy-makers who work to further refine and develop a health care system that is compassionate, accessible, evidence-based, integrative, and technologically advanced.
