Cranial manipulation is a fast-growing area of manual therapy practice. In the new edition of Cranial Manipulation Theory and Practice Leon Chaitow, together with four expert contributors, present the latest thinking on the use of this valuable approach, together with the most up-to-date research evidence to support its use. Osteopathic biomechanical, as well as biodynamic, concepts are thoroughly examined, as are chiropractic and dental approaches, involving cranial and cranio-facial manipulation.
Written in the style of a clinical manual, incorporating numerous palpation, assessment and treatment exercises, the text is easy to follow and links the theory to the practical problems of the clinician. The book is unique in describing both soft tissue and osseous applications, and in providing the practitioner/therapist with guidance on which option to select in different clinical situations. The details of the techniques described are supported by high-quality illustrations and practical exercises are included to help improve clinical skills.
