Ortman Chiropractic Clinic - History

Amon S. Ortman

...
Amon S. Ortman Founder of the Hotel & Clinic Practiced 1918 to 1956.
...
The Ortman tradition began in 1915 when Amon Ortman provided chiropractic care for friends, relatives and neighbors using his farmhouse as the original clinic. As word spread of his success in treating aches and pains, thousands of people from surrounding areas flocked to the Ortman farm for treatment. Amon's younger brother Noah began to assist him in treating patients as the numbers grew.
The clinic is unique in that it practices the Sitting-Up Technique exclusively. This "Ortman Technique" has become the Ortman trademark. This technique evolved from the way Amon Ortman initially treated patients at his farmhouse. He would have them sit down on anything convenient -- a chair, a bucket, a wagon tongue, a buggy seat - and apply his treatment. Since 1915, over three million patients coming from every state in the United States have received treatment.

The Ortman Technique was created in 1915 by Dr. Amon Ortman and is administered as it was 100 years ago: using firm thumb pressure to correct spinal misalignment and balance nerve, soft tissue, and joint functions while the patient is seated.

The early days of Amon Ortman's amazing Canistota clinic.

...
The early days of Amon Ortman's amazing Canistota clinic.
...
Chol Atem and Amon Ortman have something in common, though they lived 100 years apart.
...
Amon was a pioneer healer, the founder of the Ortman Chiropractic Clinic at Canistota that is celebrating its 100th year this month.
...
We have always loved the story of Amon Ortman, the farmer with a gift for healing. The legacy he created through the generations continues today, and we've featured it on several occasions in South Dakota Magazine.
Of course I never met Amon Ortman, but I feel like I know him because like many of you I grew up with old-timers like that. People who worked hard. Who cared about their neighbors and their communities. People who thought you could do great things right here in South Dakota as well as anywhere else in the world.
I can easily picture Amon, after a hard day's work of his own in the field, coming to the farmyard and finding a neighbor waiting with a sore shoulder. And I can see him inviting the neighbor to maybe sit on the running board of the car. They talk about the rain --- or the lack of rain - and Amon lays his hands on that bad shoulder.
People like Amon and places like Canistota have made all the difference for South Dakota.
