A.T.Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine was born in Virginia in 1828. After sehrving an apprenticeship under his father, he completed additional coursework at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Kansas City, Missouri, He went on to serve as a surgeon in the Union Army during the American Civil War. After the Civil War and following the death of three of his children from spinal meningitis in 1864, Still concluded that the orthodox medical practices of his day were ineffective and devoted the next ten years of his life to studying the human body and fi nding better ways to treat disease.
His research and clinical observations led him to believe that the musculoskeletal system played a vital role in health and disease and that the body contained all of the elements needed to maintain health if properly stimulated. Still believed that by correcting problems in the body‘s structure, through the use of manual techniques, the body’s ability to function and to heal itself could be greatly improved.
He also promoted the idea of preventive medicine and endorsed the philosophy that physicians should focus on treating the whole patient (“triune nature of man”), rather than just the disease. At the time, these beliefs formed the basis of a new medical approach, osteopathic medicine.
Osteolib series Vol IV.
In his last book, Still takes a regional approach in discussing disease process and how to treat with Osteopathy. He emphasizes that he has tested and tried all the techniques he presents in the book for their effi cacy. He also outlines the basic principles of medical practice of the day that did not harmonize with Osteopathic philosophy. He begins the book with descriptions of the fundamentals of Osteopathy with emphasis on fi nding the dysfunction and then using the appropriate method to release it. He then proceeds to discuss each region of the body (head, throat, thorax, abdomen, etc.), obstetrics, fetal and prenatal care.
