Who We Treat

Who Do Osteopathic Practitioners Treat?

Qualified Osteopathic Practitioners are trained in the evaluation and treatment of the body at any stage in life with an understanding that each life cycle presents with a unique set of concerns, strategies, and healthcare goals. Many Osteopathic Practitioners have acquired additional training to support athletes, pregnant mothers, newborns, pediatrics, or the elderly.

Osteopathic Practitioners do not just treat the area of concern but attend to the individual as a whole. They address a wide variety of health problems throughout the body including the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, digestive, and nervous systems. Some of the more common complaints that patients seek manual osteopathic treatments for include neck and back pain, headaches, whiplash, sports or occupational injuries, pain during pregnancy, arthritis, asthma, or digestive complaints. Many Osteopathic Practitioners have acquired additional training to focus on specific areas of interest including concussions, vestibular or other neurological dysfunction, perinatal care of mom and newborn, or nutritional support. As a member of the healthcare community, Osteopathic Practitioners collaborate with or refer out to other professionals as required.
