Naprapathy (Czech náprava, correction - from napravit, to correct'') is a branch of complementary medicine, a manipulative therapy that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions.
Naprapathy was founded in the early 1900s by Dr Oakley Smith, an early chiropractor. Naprapathy is a derivative of osteopathy and chiropractic which focuses on the spine and connective tissue. Naprapaths working with the spine emphasise the underlying ligaments.
