OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE and why to choose Bhavik Patel
Osteopathic medicine is the practice of treating a person as a whole and not just by treating symptoms. Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (dos) take a preventive approach to health care, which means treating diseases as well as preventing them.
Providing hands-on care from a holistic perspective
All specialties of medicine are practiced by osteopathic physicians, including primary care, paediatrics, obstetrics, emergency medicine, psychiatry, and surgery. Furthermore, dos hold some of the most well-known positions in the field today, including supervising the care of all members of the United States government, the NASA medical team, and more.
The training of dos begins in medical school, where they learn to take into account lifestyle and environmental factors that influence health. The doctors practice medicine based on the latest advances in science and technology, but they also consider alternative methods to supplement surgical and pharmaceutical procedures. An important component of dos’ education is the study of the musculoskeletal system, the system of nerves, muscles, and bones that connect your body.
Taking a preventative approach and paying attention to how the patient’s lifestyle and environment can affect his or her health. In addition to assisting patients with symptoms, doctors strive to help them attain true health in mind, body, and spirit.
