Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathy–or Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine–is a system of medical diagnosis and treatment that works within the anatomical framework of the human body. Osteopathic philosophy maintains that proper mechanical function is essential to good health, and that problems within that framework can disturb the neuromusculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, and lymphatic systems to any part of the body–thus disturbing health. D.O.s use osteopathic manipulative treatment to restore the structure of the body to a state of balance and functional harmony, helping the body to return to a state of optimal well-being.
