What is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine?

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) are fully licensed physicians. They provide a full range of services, from prescribing drugs to performing surgery, and they use the latest medical tools. But DOs offer something special—their unique approach to patient care. Osteopathic physicians are trained to:

  • teach patients how to prevent illness and injury by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
  • look at the whole person to reach a diagnosis without focusing just on symptoms.
  • help the body to heal itself.
  • believe that all parts of the body work together and influence one another. DOs are specially trained in the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones).
  • perform osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), a hands-on approach to diagnosing, treating, and preventing illness or injury.
