Doctors of Osteopathy (DO) are equal to Medical Doctors (MD) in both training and practice. The difference is that DO’s are also taught how to use their hands to relieve pain and reduce the symptoms of many different diseases. They use multiple techniques that range from soothing Cranial-Sacral to stimulating Lymphatic Drainage, to spinal adjustments and many others.
