Literature upon the manual treatment of pelvic pathology is surprisingly meager. It is by no means a new subject. During the same years two men in widely distant parts of the world were developing the treatment, Major Thure Brandt (1822-1895) a layman and an officer in the Swedish army and Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917) an American physician.
These men were developing the treatment along different lines. Major Brandt, according to his training, along the lines of gymnastics and massage. Dr. Still with his newly discovered principle that mechanical perfection is the chief element in the maintenance of health, along the lines of mechanical adjustment of bodily structure. Nor did Major Brandt give any consideration to spinal maladjustment, with consequent disturbance of spinal innervation, as being related in any way to pelvic pathology.
So the teachings of these two men and their followers are related as massage is to osteopathy. Massage is by no means useless but is merely an adjunct. It lacks the definite, specific ideal of adjustment (the essential principle of osteopathy), but is sometimes useful as a means to accomplish this end.
With a desire to aid in the further development of this most valuable therapeutic measure the following pages are presented.
