Chapman Points are specific anatomical locations in the human body identified by osteopath Frank Chapman, believed to correspond with the function of various organs and physiological systems. These points, often noted as nodules or tissue changes under the skin, purportedly reflect dysfunction or disease within the associated internal structures when palpated.

Physicians trained in osteopathic medicine use these points as part of their diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, applying direct pressure to stimulate healing responses. Although their clinical utility remains a subject of debate due to limited empirical evidence, they form an integral component of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT).

The relationship between Chapman Points and viscerosomatic reflexes is a principal aspect of their theoretical basis. This postulates that irritation or disease in an internal organ can manifest as changes in related musculoskeletal regions due to shared nervous system pathways. Chapman’s work represents an attempt to map these connections systematically.
