About Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathic Medicine is a form of medicine which places a focus of interrelated unity of all systems of the human body. This philosophy sees all systems working together to heal when ill. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) practice in all specialties and are fully licensed physicians. They focus on factors of environment and lifestyle which may impact your well being, instead of just your physical symptoms.
