FOREWORD

The Osteopathic Institute of Applied Technique began

with a series of lectures given during the year of 1954 at

quarterly intervals and at the invitation of the Management

Committee of the Maidstone Osteopathic Clinic. Its

purpose was the preservation of the Principles, Technique

and Practice of Osteopathy as laid down by Still and

Littlejohn.

The lectures were given by the Founder Members and invited guests. These were then collected and published in a Year Book dating from 1956. Long since out of print it was considered that such valuable material should be made available to a generation of students and practitioners who have had little opportunity to become acquainted with the fundamental teaching of osteopathic philosophy.

Other contributions to our publications included research from earlier records from the work of the American pioneers in osteopathic development. In its history of little more than a hundred years, there can be no doubt that the osteopathic concept has made an impact on twentieth century medicine that is more than remarkable, but if we are to continue and retain our separate identity we must look to our past in association with the present in building a secure foundation for the future.

J. MARTIN LITTLEJOHN

For the first time in Europe and in this metropolis of the world I desire to present the claims of this new science. I appear as the apologist of the new science, because, having examined its claims, I find that they are based on scientific principles which are the common property of the medical profession. It is not unfitting that to this ancient scientific corporation the first exposition and defence of osteopathy should be offered. Your charter rights as a Royal Society give you the privilege and honour of branding any scientific truth as genuine and to you belongs the right of disseminating it among the common people. I am encouraged by the lines of Hamlet,

addressed to Horatio:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

It is something to have the privilege in these closing years of the nineteenth century to live and take part in scientific efforts and movements that promise to crown civilization with its highest glory. In the field of medicine changes are taking place unheard of in by-gone generations. In other fields of literature and science artificiality is giving place to naturality.

Accumulations that have been added to science are being unloaded and we are being led back to the simpler and more sure methods of nature. An ancient scholar has this exalted praise of the healing art: “Man in nothing comes nearer to the Gods than in giving health to his fellow mortals”.

Science is ever progressive, every new decade opening up depths and heights in the scientific field hitherto unthought of. No science and art has been subject to so many changes as that of medicine. We use medicine in the widest sense here. Dr. Malcolm Morris, FRCS, in writing on the progress of medicine during the Queen’s reign, defines medicine as including “the whole art of healing, and the laws upon which this practice is based”. The science of medicine is not limited to drugs or their prescription and use; in fact, the therapy of the modern university medical college is rapidly discrediting drugs. The Encyclopaedic Dictionary defines medicine as “a science and art directed, first to the prevention of diseases, and secondly, to their cure”. Only a very small place in the educational programme is devoted to drugs. Anatomy, physiology, pathology, symptomatology and 1 diagnosis have found their guardians and promoters and defenders in these schools, and if we set aside pharmacology there is still left a large field of medical education.

Gradually people are realizing that there are more scientific means of curing diseases than by the use of mysterious and uncertain drug potencies.

Almost instinctively people in every land seem to be turning in the same direction, towards a system in which the main principle is the adjustment of the mechanism to itself and the harmonizing of its organic functions.

Pain is found where a contracted muscle presses on a sensory nerve, loss of muscle function or paralysis if it presses on a motor nerve. The misplacement of a bone, ligament or muscle, the obstruction of a blood vessel calls for the mechanical skill of an operator to replace the misplacement or to remove the obstruction so that in freedom the system may play normally. Nerve inactivity, fluid congestion or stagnation, or the collection of diseased or germ-laden fluids in the system call for the mechanical liberation of the affected parts, and in this liberation lies the secret of health restoration and the removal of sickness and disease.

Scientific investigators all over the world are beginning to recognize that we must take account of the structure and functions of the body in applying our therapeutics on a basis of adaptability to conditions.

Dr. Willock, MRCS, in calling attention to new treatments for the chest, says these methods of dealing with these diseases “have thrust drugs from the unique position that they held. They have emphasized the fact that something else other than pharmaceutical products has an important remedial action upon pathological conditions of the respiratory and circulatory systems. Of all the several systems upon whose uninterrupted functional activity the continuance of life depends, these two are those over which we have most mechanical control, and it is by mechanical means that we can obtain a considerable and important therapeutical effect in certain unhealthy states of the heart and lungs.” In regard to the application of mechanical treatment, he adds, that in this way “the strain upon the impoverished tissue is diminished and its vitality prolonged. In addition the effect of continued movements upon elastic and muscular tissues, provided undue effort is avoided is to develop them.” Here we have the statement that mechanical movements give us an increased functional activity and an increased nutrition. If we add to this the facts that physiologically nerve stimulation may be promoted, blood and lymph circulation freed and obstructions taken out of the way by mechanical 2 means so as to free the nerve force, the blood, the lymph, and the peristaltic movements of the tissues, we have the fundamental basis of osteopathy.

We owe a debt of untold gratitude to predecessors who have tilled the fields of anatomy and physiology, both normal and morbid and made it possible for us to apply the principles of osteopathy with precision and definiteness to the human system. The principle of osteopathy is a timehonoured one, similia similibus curantur, in the sense that the only rational and scientific method of curing disease is based upon nature. Nature has won victories in other fields. In the field of education nature won a victory in discarding the old system of cramming and making education the stimulation of mental development by the skilful communication of knowledge by nature’s method. Nature can do the same in the field of medicine, by removing everything that is unnatural; it can permit recourse to the perfect medicine laboratory of life, out of which the soothing draughts of nature flow to diseased parts.
