which looks beyond the patient’s symptoms to address the underlying cause of illness
and working with the patient to improve their health through education, prevention,
and quality care.
About Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
The basic tenets of osteopathic medicine are:
- The body is a unit of mind, body, and spirit.
- The body is capable of self-healing.
- Structure and function are interrelated.
- Rational treatment is based on the understanding of these principles.
This comprehensive approach to patient care includes osteopathic manipulative medicine
(OMM) which utilizes osteopathic philosophy, structural diagnosis and use of osteopathic
manipulative treatment (OMT) in the diagnosis and management of patients.
