Doctor Still was a pioneer of the practice of teaching women and minorities to administer treatment and an early advocate of prescribing pharmaceutical cures in a proportionate way, He has inspired a global healthcare practice with his body of work.
Still was a surgeon by specialism which in some ways makes his invention of a technique with an emphasis on non-invasive treatment even more surprising. He became convinced by and argued for physical manipulation over other treatments as a result of the absence of terrible side effects that he had observed for some common practices and prescriptions at the time. He spent his life promoting his system across the world and he founded the first American School of Osteopathy.
This work gives an excellent perspective on the practice and development of Osteopathic treatment, straight from the mouth of the founder of the entire tradition. Osteopaths, those with an interest in medical history will gain a great deal from The Philosophy and Mechanical Principles of Osteopathy.
