Robert Fulford, D.O. (1905-1997) was an important, if enigmatic, figure in late twentieth-century osteopathy. Trained at the Kansas City School of Osteopathy and Surgery (class of 1941), he was a strong believer in the -triune- nature of man---physical, mental, and spiritual---and the importance of diagnosing and treating the whole person, not just the physical symptoms. Dr. Fulford's career was a testament to this ideal, what A.T. Still called the philosopher physician. In the mid-1940s he studied cranial osteopathy with William Garner Sutherland and became a lifelong member (and one-time president) of The Cranial Academy. During the course of a practice that spanned six decades he explored a wide spectrum of scientific and philosophical ideas about the basis and mechanics of life. Nothing was off limits---field theory, Aryuvedic medicine, biomagnetics, psychological and subtle energy medicine, crystals. Always he followed Sutherland's advice to -dig on, - integrating whatever was useful into the practice of what he termed -twenty-first century medicine.-

The osteopathic profession has developed many treatment modalities and approaches to manipulation. Ligamentous articular strain is the name given by William G. Sutherland, D.O., the founder of cranial osteopathy, to a group of techniques that he used for treating the body outside the core axis of the craniosacral system. The term has since come to refer to a wide variety of techniques that engage the body's own healing mechanisms in a relatively direct manner. For over thirty years the Dallas Osteopathic Study Group, originally under the tutelage of Rollin Becker, D.O., has been exploring this type of manipulation. Ligamentous Articular Strain is the distillation of their work. The introductory chapters address the historical development of this approach, and review some of its scientific underpinnings. The remaining chapters are devoted to an examination of the body, area by area, from the feet to the shoulders, describing and depicting effective manipulative techniques. Ligamentous Articular Strain provides clear instructions and vivid illustrations which will enable the trained practitioner to quickly gain proficiency in these techniques. It also presents a cogent approach to working with the concepts of the key lesion and the bowstring, first developed by Rollin Becker. In this revised edition, over a hundred new illustrations graphically depict the techniques described in the book, and minor changes have been made to update the text.

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.
