What is a D.O.?

Updated: Feb 5

Have you ever wondered what the abbreviation D.O. after a physician name stands for?

D.O. stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Osteopathic Medicine physicians are licensed physicians who practice in all fields of medicine. They can be primary care physicians, specialist and/or surgeons.  

D.O.’s receive special training in the musculoskeletal system and OMT. The musculoskeletal system is an interconnected system made up of the bones, muscles, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, joints and other connective tissue. 

OMT is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose and treat injury. D.O.'s use OMT to move a patient’s muscles and joints to recovery with stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.What does this mean for you?

If you have sports/exercise injuries or any issues regarding the back, neck, knee, ankle/foot, wrist/hand, shoulder, hip, elbow, or any spinal or extremity pain, we are experienced to take great care of you.

Our goal is to get you back to your active lifestyle and teach you ways to prevent the same injuries from reoccurring. 

Additionally, Osteopathic physicians focus on prevention and how your lifestyle and environment plays an impact on your health.

We are here to help and would love to meet you and be part of your road to recovery!

Wishing you all good health,

Dr. Sapna Rajput
