A D.O., or osteopath, is a physician who has all of the education and privileges of an M.D., or allopathic physician. Unlike allopathic physicians, osteopaths also receive extensive training in body structure, function, and hands-on manipulation. We approach the body as a whole, looking for the cause of symptoms, and not just masking them with medications. Osteopaths treat these symptoms by isolating the source of the problem, tapping into the body’s own healing powers, and removing the source (a dysfunction) through hands-on manipulation.
Osteopaths have often prevented patients from resorting to prolonged uses of medications and unnecessary surgery. Patients often experience relief from an illness after just one treatment. Manipulation is great for preventative health, chronic or acute illnesses, and attaining optimal health.
However, osteopaths can also prescribe medication and recommend surgery and other treatments when appropriate.
Osteopathy is a comprehensive alternative that can provide a healthier future for you and your family.
