Osteopathy, Doctors of (DO)

Both Doctors of Ostepathic Medicine (DO's) and Medical Doctors (MD's) are fully qualified physicians licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery. DO's practice a "whole person" approach to medicine. Instead of just treating you for specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard your body as an integrated whole. DO's receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is incorporated into the training and practice of osteopathic physicians. With OMT, osteopathic physicians use their hands to diagnose illness and injury and to encourage your body's natural tendency toward good health. By combining all other available medical options with OMT, DO's offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today*. (source www.osteopathic.org)
