What is a D.O.?

Osteopathic manipulative medicine is a unique hand-on treatment offered by Doctors of Osteopathy. D.O.s are fully trained and licensed physicians who have extra training in the musculoskeletal system. As a D.O.,, there is a deep respect for the interconnections of the body and the potential to affect multiple systems in the body through its framework.

The tenets of osteopathic medicine include:

  • The body works as a whole unit
  • Structure and function are interrelated
  • The body has an innate potential to heal itself

Dr. Kim approaches patients with this kind of holistic approach and may offer manipulation as part of the treatment plan.

She's the best Doctor I have been to and I will continue being a loyal, faithful patient" ~ SS
