Treating the whole patient is a hallmark of osteopathic medicine. When your child is fighting a complicated health problem, conventional treatments may leave underlying causes unresolved. The osteopathic approach treats both the acute condition and the child’s entire system. The goal is not just to resolve the immediate problem, but also to improve the patient’s overall health and wellbeing and to prevent recurring challenges.
An Osteopathic Physician, or DO, has the same privileges as an Allopathic Physician (MD), from ordering labs and advanced imaging to prescribing medicines and making referrals to specialists. But, a DO has trained in specialized techniques, including Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT. OMT is an approach to diagnosis, treatment, and prevention that focuses on the patient’s muscles, joints, and skeleton to relieve pain and improve overall health.
