Regular & Aquatic
Naprapathic Medicine is a "system of specific examination, diagnostics, manual treatment and rehabilitation of pain and dysfunction in the neuromusculoskeletal system. The therapy is aimed at restoring function through treatment of the connective tissue, muscles and neural tissues within or surrounding the spine and other joints".
Like Chiropractic, Naprapathy find its origins in Osteopathy. The first Naprapathy Association was founded in the USA in 1907. Nowadays, Naprapathy is regulated in some States of the USA and is well established in Scandinavia, where the profession is part of the Swedish health and medical care system since 1994.

Doctors of Naprapathy specialize in the treatment of Connective Tissue disorders and treat numerous neuromusculoskeletal conditions. "Naprapaths treat each patient from his or her individual capability in the purpose of restoring balance and function to the neuromusculoskeletal system in order to obtain an optimal healing process.
