The Colorado Osteopathic Approach
Osteopathic physicians believe that we can improve the body’s ability to function and heal itself by correcting structural problems (or restrictions) in the body. We also believe in treating the whole
person, the fully integrated being of mind, body, and spirit. Your spiritual and emotional health are just as important as physical restrictions to the functioning of the whole body.

She first decided to pursue osteopathic training after learning about the unique osteopathic
philosophy on a high school field trip. As she had watched family members suffer from chronic
disease with little relief from standard western medicine, this philosophy resonated with her and
became the driving force during her undergraduate years of study.
She earned her undergraduate degree in Biology-Chemistry from Southern Nazarene University
in Bethany, Oklahoma. She then earned a Master’s degree in Bioethics at Kansas City
University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri. She attended medical school
at Oklahoma State College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma and focused on rural

What is Osteopathic Medicine?
Osteopathic Medicine is a unique medical practice developed and founded by Andrew Taylor Still, MD in 1874. Dr Still was a physician in the Civil war who became frustrated with the ineffective and dangerous “therapies” of the day. He was an avid anatomist, and this led him to the conclusion that the musculoskeletal system plays a vital role in health and disease.
Osteopathic physicians believe that we can improve the body’s ability to function and heal itself by correcting structural problems (or restrictions) in the body. We also believe in treating the whole person, the fully integrated being of mind, body, and spirit. Your spiritual and emotional health are just as important as physical restrictions to the functioning of the whole body. D.O.s use OMM/OMT to treat their patients. D.O.s (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) are fully licensed physicians, and can be found practicing medicine in all specialties in the United States. Their extensive training in anatomy and physiology, as well as years of supervised clinical training, makes them more experienced than any other practitioner providing manual therapy.
Osteopathic manipulation (OMM or OMT) is hands-on treatment that uses palpation and gentle manipulation of the musculoskeletal system to treat all levels of the body – bones, muscles, nerves, and connective tissue. Osteopathic manipulation also incorporates cranial osteopathy and visceral manipulation to help the entire body heal.
