In 1874, Andrew Taylor Still MD DO (1828-1917), a medical doctor living on the Missouri, discovered the relationship between living anatomy in health and disease.
Dr. Still realised that optimal health is obtained only when all tissues and cells of the body function together in harmony. He reasoned that disease could have its origins in slight anatomical deviation from normal. He proved he could restore health by treating the body with his hands restoring health; he called his techniques Osteopathy.
Still understood that all of the body was connected and that the human being is more than a physical body. In the late 1800s none of today's drugs, such as antibiotics, were available. Out of necessity, Dr. Still looked first to nature to heal, and found a way to access this ability within the body.
Still saw the body had a self-correcting potential and this is the cornerstone of his osteopathic philosophy. When combined with appropriate use of present day medical diagnostics and therapeutics, osteopathy offers a profound contribution to the practice of medicine.
