Autograph manuscript by Charles François Tacheron.
Probably one of the first versions of this unpublished text, which was submitted to the Ghent Medical Society in 1846.
Many erasures and repentances in the text as well as the corrections in the margin make it possible to attend a medical book under construction.
Charles François Tacheron headed with his wife an orthopedic medical institute in Brussels specializing in the treatment of scoliosis in young girls.
While the doctors of the time proposed tenotomy to correct deformities, Tacheron follows in the line of Charles-Gabriel Pravaz by promoting medical gymnastics and muscle strengthening to his patients.
It thus spares them the painful stretching sessions on the extension beds, and the dangers of medical intervention.
With this manuscript Tacheron therefore places himself among the first promoters of what will become physiotherapy much later.
Perhaps too innovative these works were never published.
