The Therapeutic Pause
in Osteopathy and
Manual Therapy

The Somatosensory
Integration Time

Until now the physiological significance of those pauses and how they may affect the success or not of the treatment has not been queried or researched.  Louise Tremblay asked herself those questions and undertook research in an attempt to find the answer.  Her physiological findings seem to justify the inclusion of a therapeutic pause (or many of them) during all manual therapy treatments. The text explains their significance and also develops and explains the concept that an understanding of human physiology is an essential element of effective manual therapy practice.« This book constitutes for me an important contribution to the osteopathic art. I hope it will give rise to some vocations to research further as to the importance of these states of immobility. » Pierre Tricot, DO, France
