A DEFINITION OF OSTEOPATHY,
Osteopathy i a system at treating
disease without drug by the use ot
the hands to adjust all part of the
human mechanism to perfect mechan
ical relation!. K is that clenco which
finds in disturbed mechanical rela
tions of the anatomical part of the
body the cause of disease, and which
is employed to cure disease by appiy
lng technical knowledge and high
manual skill to the correction of all
disturbed relations occurring in the
mechanical arrangement of the, body.
It is a science founded upon the
principles, of anatomy and physiology.
The word does not mean the treat
ment of bones nor of bone diseases.
It waa used aa a name because the
founder discovered the importance
of disturbance in the bony frame
work of the body in causing disease.
He studied the skeleton aa the foun
dation of anatomy, upon which sci
ence he grounded hie ayatem. The
meaning of the word applies not only
to derangement of bony parts, but
as we'l to disturbed relations of
nerves, ligaments, tendons, blood
vessels, muscles and of any body tis
sue. Journal of Osteopathy.
