about

Frontier Doctor, Medical Pioneer is an intimate look at the life of Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine. Still mistrusted the drugs that were routinely used during the nineteenth century, but his use of hands-on manipulation led to severe and very public criticism. After years of repeated success in treating patients, the validity of his methods was finally acknowledged. Frontier Doctor, Medical Pioneer is an intimate look at the life of Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine. Still mistrusted the drugs that were routinely used during the nineteenth century, but his use of hands-on manipulation led to severe and very public criticism. After years of repeated success in treating patients, the validity of his methods was finally acknowledged. Author Charles E. Still Jr., grandson of Andrew, uses family stories and records to chronicle Still’s life, including his family life on the frontier and his role in the anti-slavery movement, as well as his work to establish osteopathy as a legitimate form of medicine that could be carried on by future generations. Frontier Doctor, Medical Pioneer provides a fascinating inside look into the origins of modern osteopathic medicine.
