Osteopathy: "a form of medical treatment purporting to cure ... diseases primarily by manipulation of the joints of the body ... based on the assumption that disease is primarily due to skeletal deformation and its effects on nerves, blood vessels etc."; Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917) was a U.S. physician who founded the first American School of Osteopathy at Kirksville, Mo. in 1892
