This book is intended as a manual for students and practising osteopaths and physical therapists interested in exploring the principles, objectives, origins and application of the 5 osteopathic models - biomechanical, neurological, respiratory-circulatory, metabolic and behavioural - from traditional concepts to a modern vision based on evidence and critical thinking. Understanding and application of these conceptual models of the relationship between structure and function enables the therapist to evaluate treatment with the aim of promoting health rather than treating disease.

Gastrointestinal tract dysfunction such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common intestinal complaints that prompts an individual to consult a doctor. However, ambiguities in defining it and slow accumulation of evidence on the benefits of treatment have made this syndrome notoriously difficult to diagnose and treat. Our goal has been to prepare a text that provide an overview of IBS and the main concepts and practice of osteopathy and nutrition. The result is a book, which presents IBS management using OMT, dietary modifications, and nutritional supplements according to current evidence-based literature. We have also added some appendices on practical applications which might then serve as a simple treatment plan for a broad range of healthcare professionals including osteopaths, physiotherapists, manual therapists, sports science graduates, massage and bodywork therapists and nutritionists, to reduce the chronic pain and inflammation that are associated with IBS.

Connective tissue release, or myofascial release, is a major component of manual therapies, including osteopathic medicine. Most methods involve placing the patient in a passive, relaxed position for diagnosis and treatment. However, many practitioners have intuitively sensed that rhythmic motion should be a component of therapy, and increasingly include it in their practice. Harmonic Healing introduces such an application of connective tissue principles, which author Dr. Zachary Comeaux calls Facilitated Oscillatory Release (FOR). The book reviews the role of oscillatory or vibratory work as an extension of other connective tissue techniques, explains the relevant physiology and the principles of wave propagation in tissue, and then provides illustrated introductory exercises, applications, and case studies. Building on the work of his mentor, Robert Fulford, to get more deeply into the core of patients’ injuries, Dr. Comeaux presents FOR as a lens through which to reinterpret the strategic use of force in manual therapy, including osteopathic manipulation. Based on both his clinical experience and neurophysiology principles, the author develops practical applications of these principles. These methods are compatible with generally accepted manual methods, and Harmonic Healing shows students, advanced practitioners, bodyworkers, and osteopaths how to integrate FOR into a variety of manual healing approaches.

In the tradition of The 5-Minute Consult Series, each diagnosis is presented on a two-page spread. The first page has a definition of the disease, a list of associated autonomic and motor innervations, and a list of common somatic dysfunctions. The second page lists the techniques that might be used for those somatic dysfunctions. The second page is further subdivided into three levels of treatment: 2-minute, 5-minute, and extended. Next to each technique is the corresponding ICD-9 code for billing. Photos and schematic drawings are included. The fully searchable online text is included with purchase of this book.
