FAQ

Is An Osteopath The Same As A Chiropractor?

No. Approximately 11% of all medical doctors in America are Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DO’s.  Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are trained in a unique, patient centered approach in every specialty of medicine.  DO’s practice all medical specialties, including primary care, surgery, psychiatry, and emergency medicine.

Osteopathic medical training focuses on looking beyond symptoms to understand how lifestyle and environment impact health.  Osteopathic medicine utilizes the latest science and technology and offers both alternative and complementary options to conventional pharmaceutical and surgical interventions.

As part of their education, DOs receive specialized training in osteopathic medicine.  This training includes the neuromusculoskeletal, lymphatics, and vascular systems.  Integrating this knowledge with the latest advances in medical technology, patients can receive the most comprehensive care available.

Osteopathic medicine involves a philosophy of care that sees an interrelationship between all systems of the body, with each working with the other to repair injury and illness.  Osteopathic medicine is practiced by Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine or DO’s.

Osteopathic education requires completing 4 years of osteopathic medical school, with an emphasis on preventative medicine and comprehensive patient care.  Upon graduation from medical school, DO’s complete internships, residencies, and fellowships.  This training can last between 3 and 8 years and prepares the DO to become licensed and board-certified.

Like all physicians in America, DO’s, are licensed to practice medicine and surgery by licensing boards in each state.  Requirements can vary depending on the state of practice.  Typically, licensure exam requirements involve completion of medical licensing examinations administered by the state licensing board or acceptance of a certificate issued by the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.

Osteopathic physicians in the US can become board-certified through the American Osteopathic Association or the American Board of Medical Specialties. Board certification denotes achievement of expertise in the specific medical specialty or subspecialty by meeting requirements of a specialty certifying board.  Board certification involves a combination of written, practical, and simulator-based tests.
