Note: Schooley has written about the osteopathic lesion and other terminology related to manual medicine in papers published in 1970 and 1987. ' ... The osteopathic lesion is produced in the labora­ tory by applying pressure on a bony prominence of a spinal segment such that it moves the artic­ ulation to the limit of its normal excursion. At this point, pressure is held on the bony promi­ nence to maintain the tension of the tissues in the direction of force that is being applied. At the instant that the osteopathic lesion is produced, there appears a 'sudden, slight yielding of the articular tissues, allowing the bony mechanism to move slightly beyond its normal resilient range of motion' (Burns, 1948).
