  Title The origins of chiropractic physiological therapeutics: Howard, Forester and Schulze
Journal Chiropr Hist. 1984 ;4(1):46-52
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Treatment of human ailments by the use of various physical methodologies has been an accepted approach to health care since antiquity.  In consideration that anything that is useful will prevail, physical treatment of human ailments by conservative (nonsurgical/nonpharmacological) means has evolved to become an exacting, scientifically-based concept of health care--independently and/or supportive to other primary therapies.  Under the influence of John Howard, Arthur Forester and William Schulze during the formative years of the National College, this form of natural therapy found a definitive place in chiropractic practice as a helpful adjunct to chiropractic manipulation.  This paper will briefly explore the historical roots of physical therapeutics in general and its inculcation into the practice of chiropractic at the National College under the broad-based title of physiological therapeutics.
