Medical Doctors that practice Alternative or Complementary Medicine

Osteopathic Medicine has always focused on treating the whole person. Developed over 130 years ago by Andrew Taylor Still, MD. Osteopathic medicine combines the tenets of traditional medicine with a focus on the whole person and the relationship of the nerves, muscles, bones and organs, and the body’s innate ability to heal itself. According to the American Osteopathic Association, Osteopathic medicine is one of the fastest growing health professions, with one out of every five medical students enrolled in a college of osteopathic medicine.

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine or DOs, are fully trained, licensed to prescribe pharmaceutical medicines, and can, and do practice in all medical and surgical specialties and sub-specialties.

Osteopathic and Natural physicians take a holistic approach to medicine. They understand that all systems of the body are interconnected and that each one affects the others. Their training covers an in-depth study of the musculoskeletal system and thus they understand how that system influences the condition of all the other bodily systems. Their holistic focus toward health and self-healing comes from the formal training they receive to identify and correct structural problems and the benefits those corrections deliver to the body to encourage healing. DOs encourage their patients to develop attitudes and lifestyles that not only fight illness but prevent it as well.

Millions of Americans prefer this compassionate, holistic approach and have chosen Alternative MDs and DOs as their primary care physicians with tremendous success.
