Osteopathic Practitioners do not diagnose or practice medicine.Always consult a physician for any disease concerns prior to exploring osteopathic manual therapies. Osteopathic practitioners use hands on techniques designed to alleviate tension and improve circulation and do not attempt to treat disease.
