Classical Osteopathy Articles, Lectures and Papers


Classical Osteopathy Articles, Lectures and Papers by Mervyn Waldman

Compiled by Alex Milne

As a result of the increasing interest shown by students and graduates in the subject of classical osteopathy, the Institute thought it timely to publish this collection of articles and lecture that I have written over the past thirty years and more. They were composed in the attempt to clarify the principles of the osteopathy practiced by the founders of the profession, more often than not in the face of epidemic disease, profound injury and disability.
