This article presents rediscovered osteopathic manipulative techniques described by Charles Hazzard in 1905 and ascribed by him to Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine. Still refrained from writing about his manipulative techniques in any significant detail, apparently intentionally. The techniques published by Hazzard have both internal consistency and similarity to those less well described by Still, suggesting that the attribution is accurate. The techniques are analyzed and presented as a variant of a direct articulatory technique with axial compression. In honour of their originator, they are being termed the Still techniques.
