Using the Recall Series question-and-answer format that has proven highly successful for medical students, this pocket-sized book provides a quick, concise review of the fundamentals of osteopathic medicine. The question-and-answer format will greatly assist readers in rapidly reviewing and recalling high-yield information for COMLEX examinations and hospital and office rotations.

Osteopathic Medicine Recall begins with the most basic concepts in osteopathic medicine, followed by a section on the axial and appendicular spine, the core of osteopathic medicine. Subsequent chapters present high-yield information on specific body areas and treatment modalities. References following each question direct readers to texts for in-depth explanations.

Pretty useful book, which can be a great help for students of Osteopathic Medicine in terms of theoretical knowledge. To get a depth insight into the practical area, I would recommend "Osteopathic treatment of low back pain and sciatica caused by disc prolapse", which describes and represents a large number of osteopathic techniques.
