The last section describes clinical case-studies to enable students to put into practice the theories and models which they have learned. This book is essential reading for all osteopathic BSc degree courses and a core textbook for undergraduate students. At the end of each section there will be clinical examples for students to work on to integrate previous knowledge. Key point boxes.
