Mechanical Link: key points of the peripheral nervous system

Bilingual edition English / French

Paul Chauffour et Eric Prat et Jacques Michaud

The nervous system, directing and managing all body functions, was always an important topic of observation for Andrew Taylor Still, founder of osteopathy.

The authors are French osteopaths who are world renowned for the quality of their teaching, and in this book they present an entirely novel approach of the peripheral nervous system based on a rapid and precise diagnosis of the critical points to be treated.

The book exposes in an educational manner the etiology of osteopathic nerve lesions and their correlation with major points of acupuncture, and gives detailed descriptions of each of the principal key points of the peripheral nervous system as well as their clinical correlations with a number of functional pathologies, that may or may not be symptomatic.

The quality of the artwork, which includes over 200 original illustrations–drawings, dissections and photographs by the authors–clearly displays the anatomy of nerves as well as the best way to approach the neural point. An entire chapter has been devoted to the encephalon and the new osteopathic treatment perspectives in this field, completing this book as a reference on the manual approach to the nervous system.

This book is intended for all osteopaths and health professionals who wish to broaden their horizons by integrating in a simple but efficient way the evaluation and treatment of “the neurological link” into their practice.
