In this book, M. Barral further develops the concepts and techniques first described in his pioneering work, Visceral Manipulation. The introductory chapter focuses on lesional chains and reflexogenic zones. There is an in-depth discussion of such diagnostic methods as global and local listening, inhibition points, and the completed form of the Adson-Wright and Lasègue tests. The treatment section introduces the techniques of recoil and general induction, and discusses treatment strategy and some special problems associated with manipulation in children. The final section of this chapter describes the autonomic plexuses of the trunk and their place in visceral manipulation. Other chapters discuss such structures as the peritoneum, spleen, and pancreas which were not covered in the first volume. There is also a discussion of the gastroesophageal junction, stomach and duodenum, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, jejunoileum and colon, and kidneys. Each of these chapters complements and expands upon those in the first book by providing fresh perspectives on the pathology of visceral disorders, diagnosis, indications for treatment, and therapeutic techniques. Also included in an appendix are the results of a study which documents, with the use of ultrasound, the effects of visceral manipulation on the mobility of the kidneys. Extensively illustrated and fully indexed, Visceral Manipulation ll is an important book for all practitioners who wish to improve their skills in visceral manipulation.
