Osteopathic Medicine

What is a Osteopathic physician?

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.

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 well-being. DOs strive to help their patients be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit — not just free of symptoms.

What makes a DO Different?

 Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, believe  there’s more to good health than the absence of pain or disease. As  guardians of wellness, DOs focus on prevention by gaining a deeper  understanding of your lifestyle and environment, rather than just  treating your symptoms. 

Listening to you and partnering in your care are at the heart of our  holistic, empathic approach to medicine. We are trained to promote the  body’s natural tendency toward health and self-healing. We practice  according to the latest science and use the latest technology. But  we also consider options to complement pharmaceuticals and surgery.
