Osteopathic Approach – Principles of Osteopathic Medicine

  • The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.
  • The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
  • Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.

The Osteopath should find health. To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”—AT Still, DO Founder of Osteopathic Medicine

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don’t just fight illness, but also help prevent disease. Millions of Americans prefer this compassionate and comprehensive care and have made DOs their physicians for life!
