Osteopathy medicine is expanding in an integrated medicine perspective.
Dr. Viola Frymann is an osteopathic physician who dedicated her life to the study and application of osteopathy for children. She founded the Osteopathic Center for Children in San Diego (California), and she is still recognized as an international reference point for pediatric osteopathy. A review of her work and of her scientific research shows the value of osteopathy in many areas of pediatric health care: neonatal problems, postural disorders, support to child’s development with regard to the neurological, learning and visual aspects.
This work encourages to deepen osteopathic medical principles in the light of new knowledge, and to consider the potential of osteopathy to elaborate individualized and integrated children’s care programs.
