Many people believe that all doctors receive the same medical training. However, there are two different kinds of doctoring education that vary in their approach to medicine. Dr. Jack is a D.O. or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. The first question most people ask upon hearing this is, "What is a D.O.?"
According to the American Osteopathic Association, "Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. Emphasizing a whole-person approach to treatment and care, DOs are trained to listen and partner with their patients to help them get healthy and stay well.
DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body's interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. By combining this knowledge with the latest advances in medical technology, they offer patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
Osteopathic physicians focus on prevention, tuning into how a patient's lifestyle and environment can impact their wellbeing. DOs strive to help you be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit -- not just free of symptoms." (2017).
At Elevated Healthcare, we strive to care for the whole person and focus on a preventative, wellness based approach that seeks to catch potential illness before they start and educate our patients on the best way to manage their own health.
