A Manual of Osteopathic
Manipulations and Treatment
Wilfred L. Riggs, D. O.
There has long been a need among students and practitioners
for a manual of movements used in Osteopathic practice. This work
in no way supplies the places of practice of medicine, but it does include
in a complete and yet concise manner all that is peculiarly osteopathic
in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The manipulations are those which the author has
tried and knows to be effective; no experimental movements are given.
The book is not intended for the general public, but it supplies a particular
niche in the practice of Osteopathy. These treatments were learned
from four sources, viz: The American School of Osteopathy, Kirksville,
Mo.; the Still College of Osteopathy, Des Moines, Iowa; the practitioners
in the field; and, from actual experience in practice.
