Osteopathy Research and Practice
by A.T. Still

This influential book is the last work of A.T. Still, the founder of osteopathy, whose ideas have greatly influenced the practice of all forms of manual medicine during this century. The book was first published in 1910 but was long out of print.

In this final summation of the fundamentals of osteopathy, Dr. Still expresses his vision of health and disease, and what it means to be an osteopath. He then looks at each region of the body and describes in detail his approach to the diagnosis and treatment of specific disorders.

A new introduction by Harold Goodman, D.O. provides historical background and sets this book in the context of the 'Old Doctor's' other writings. This new cloth edition of Osteopathy Research and Practice should be required reading for all practitioners of manual medicine.

"The mechanical principles on which osteopathy is based are as old as the universe. I discovered them while I was in Kansas."
A.T. Still

"I recommend this book for practitioners and teachers alike as a document to guide osteopathic medicine's contributions during our next hundred years."
