Principles of Osteopathic Medicine
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.
What is a DO?
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs)
help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don’t just fight
illness, but also help prevent disease. Million of Americans prefer this
concerned and compassionate care and have made DOs their physicians for
“The Osteopath should find health. To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.”
