9781440038914: Osteopathy, Research and Practice (Classic Reprint)

Today we are familiar with a raft of complementary therapies and medicinal traditions but when Andrew Taylor Still began to develop Osteopathy, the information available was scant. Classical textbooks, a conventional medical education for the time and a single man's experience of medical practice was the basis Dr. Still had to work from. His driving force was a distaste for the suffering he believed to be the result of typical medical treatments and strategies of the time.

Dr. Still sought to change the necessity for medical treatments with harsh side effects and uncertain affect. He experimented with alternative therapy techniques including hydropathy, prescribed diets and bone manipulation. Still found comfort in the lack of debilitating side effects that these methods showed and he hoped to see a medical model which involved more sparing use of drugs and surgery prevail. The term which is now familiar across the world 'Osteopathy' comes from Still's conviction that the cause of a range of maladies or pathologies could be found in the musculoskeletal system. In his own words 'by which nature under the scientific treatment peculiar to osteopathic practice, apart from all ordinary methods of extraneous, artificial, or medicinal stimulation, and in harmonious accord with its own mechanical principles, molecular activities, and metabolic processes, may recover from displacements, disorganizations, derangements, and consequent disease, and regained its normal equilibrium of form and function in health and strength'.

As a pioneer of teaching women and minorities to administer treatment and an early advocate of prescribing in a proportionate way, Dr. Still has inspired a global healthcare practice with Osteopathy, Research and Practice.

About the Author :

Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917) was the founder of osteopathy. His father was a doctor and Methodist preacher who moved with the American frontier, which meant that Still grew up in Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and Kansas. After studying medicine with his father, Dr. Still began his own practice in 1854. He and his family were firm abolitionists and he served briefly in the Civil War. After three members of his family died from spinal meningitis in 1864, he became disillusioned with conventional medicine and started his search for a better way to practice. He discovered the principles of osteopathy in 1874. Shortly afterwards he settled in Kirksville, Missouri where he lived for the rest of his life. It was there, in 1892, that he established the first osteopathic school, the American School of Osteopathy.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Osteopathy, Research and Practice In working out the general scheme of this book I have considered the human body in sections, or regions. I have classified the effects of abnormalities of the human body, or the so-called diseases, upon a basis of nerve and blood supply and the region affected. Often the line of separation cannot be closely drawn, as will be seen in my discussion of the condition. I have considered the most general diseased conditions of the regions of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Some conditions being more extensive in their effects do not properly fall into any of these classes but belong to the region above the diaphragm. Others belong to the region below the diaphragm; while others general in character, are spoken of as spinal. For convenience in referring to contagious diseases and fevers I have grouped them under a separate heading. I have omitted all cuts and pictures because the reader of my practice is supposed to have in his mind an image of every bone, muscle, nerve, organ and part of the human body. His thorough anatomical and physiological acquaintance with the body makes it useless to have illustrations in this work. On your table are fully illustrated works on anatomy by able authors. Keep well posted on anatomy because the osteopath reasons from his mechanical knowledge of anatomy. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
