About Osteopathic Manipulation

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine use a unique whole-person approach to help prevent illness and injury.

What is a DO? Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. Emphasizing a whole-person approach to treatment and care, DOs are trained to listen and partner with their patients to help them get healthy and stay well. Learn more about the DO differenceand​​​​​ compare physician training requirements to those required for other types of clinicians.

DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. By combining this knowledge with the latest advances in medical technology, they offer patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.

Osteopathic physicians focus on prevention, tuning into how a patient’s lifestyle and environment can impact their wellbeing. DOs strive to help you be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit—not just free of symptoms.

Thanks to the AOA for that information.  Read more here from the American Osteopathic Association.
