Home Study Course Osteopathy in 5 Parts
By the Columbia College of Osteopathy
Published in 1902, with 150 pages.
INTRODUCTION TO PART FIRST
In this part of our course we present to the student the theory and practical principles of Osteopathy. We have endeavored, so far as was possible, to make the instruction practical and to the point, and have not wasted words in elaborating theories or describing the several methods, movements and forms of Osteopathic Theatment, but have, on the contrary, aimed to state everything clearly, forcibly and practically, so as to lose no time in getting to the point.
We have omitted, so far as was possible, all technical terms and expressions, and have always used the common and generally understood term in preference to the technical one.
We have endeavored to give the student specific directions for the various procedures recommended, with the reason for each, but have wished to avoid taking him into the maze of theory and speculation. We have given him in a few words the theory underlying Osteopathy, eliminating the vague generalities
and the speculative vagaries of many writers upon the subject.
