Lost Techniques of Manual Osteopathy
Did you know we are the only osteopathy school teaching the manual mechanotherapy techniques of H. R. Spitler?
Dr Spitler, MD, DC, DO, PhD was a chiropractor, medical doctor, optometrist & osteopath in Ohio, USA who invented a model of osteopathy techniques about a hundred years ago that dealt with soft tissue as well as osseous manual therapy.
As his techniques focused mainly on orthopedic conditions of musculoskeletal system, he fell out of favor with the osteopathy leadership of the time and his techniques were not taught in most osteopathic schools.
Manual mechanotherapy is now mainly practiced in Ohio by a group of practitioners calling themselves mechanotherpists. The techniques are considered the lost techniques of osteopathy.
Dr. Daniel Nuzum, NMD, DO (from Ohio, USA) has done six lectures on this technique which is now available for our students to watch at our video server.
To celebrate opening the first and only manual osteopathy university in the United States, in the month of May 2016 we are giving free access to all our updated and new videos to all NAO and NUMSS graduates once they complete an assignment. Contact Rachel or Luary if you wish to receive information on how to get your free user ID and password to our video server.
