 What is a D.O.?

 

D.O. stands for doctor of osteopathic medicine. This credential means that the physician has completed

 

all of the traditional education and training to provide medical care including medical school and

 

residencies. Further, D.O.s receive additional emphasis on the musculoskeletal system (bones and

 

muscles in the body) and incorporate osteopathic manipulation treatment into their practices.

 

Osteopathic manipulation, an emphasis on disease and injury prevention, and a holistic treatment

 

approach lead to integrated patient care and provide the foundation for care provided by the D.O.
