Osteopathy uses hands-on therapy to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury.
Osteopathy’s central mission is treating the whole person and not just their symptoms, with every part of the body linked to and affecting every other part. The goal is pain-free movement and overall health. Doctors of osteopathy (D.O.) are medical doctors and provide patients with all the procedures, techniques and sub-specialties of standard western medicine, however osteopathic manipulation adds an additional dimension of care.
What to Expect
Structure influences function so OM helps a person’s body function to its best potential by addressing any mechanical or musculoskeletal problems. Patients can breathe better, move better, sleep better, utilize their energy more effectively, have improved flow of blood, nervous and lymphatic tissues, and generally stay more active and healthy. Equipped with OM in addition to all other advances of medical technology, D.O.s offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
