About Osteopathic Medicine 

A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine receives special training in the musculoskeletal system, the body's intricate system of muscles, nerves and bones. This advanced training provides DOs with a keen understanding of how the body's systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. DOs are fully licensed physicians who practice 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. 

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

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient's muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. 

OMT can help people of all ages and backgrounds. The treatment can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. Although often used to treat muscle pain, the treatment can also help patients with a number of other health problems such as asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, migranes, and menstrual pain.
