Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same a.s OsteopaiU Treattn "-as?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
that which is out of place, to ri^ht that which is wrong, but the Path-
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely diffeient.
One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiiopractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic i ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times moi thor-
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.
