What is a DO?
If you're like a lot of people, you've puzzled over the distinctions between DO's and MD's. Both credentials denote licensed physicians who have passed rigorous coursework and residencies, can prescribe medication and work in a range of specialties. So what difference does it make whether your doctor is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine or a Doctor of Medicine?
We think it makes a great deal of difference - especially in our field of expertise, which is helping people with pain. Osteopathic physicians, like Dr. Craig Chappell, are committed to a philosophy that "sees all systems of the body as an interrelated unity, each working with the other to heal in times of illness." DO's treat you as a whole person.
Osteopathic medical schools also require more classes on the musculoskeletal system so that they better understand how that system influences the condition of all other body systems. In addition, DO's are trained to identify and correct structural problems, which can assist your body's natural tendency toward health and self-healing.
One of the ways DO's treat patients is with healing touch such as Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. If your particular condition calls for OMT, Dr. Chappell will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
