Osteopathic practitioners are trained not only in the art of truly listening to their patients, but they’re also adept at looking beyond the symptoms to assess you as a whole person. It makes a difference when your practitioner is trained to truly listen and go beyond the manifestations of your illness.
At BodeHealth, our osteopaths strive to locate and identify the source of your problem and address it in a natural, safe, and truly effective way.
Osteopathic practitioners follow the axiom, “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” For osteopaths, the absence of illness or pain doesn’t necessarily equate to good health. Being a custodian of health and well-being, we support prevention above treatment by endeavoring to intimately understand your lifestyle and environment. We would rather help prevent the rise of symptoms than treat them. That doesn’t mean osteopaths don't treat your symptoms, in fact, oftentimes we treat symptoms more effectively than medical doctors because we focus on the root cause of the problem.
Most osteopaths are empathetic practitioners who listen and hear you. We partner with you in your search for wholeness and well-being. We are trained to foster the body’s natural predisposition towards wellness and self-healing, and we continuously upgrade our practice and utilize the latest methods and technologies that science has to offer. This means we may also support drugs and surgery as adjunctive measures, if the need for them truly arises.
Certified osteopathic practitioners follow the tenets of their profession in every medical field they perform. We are trained in diagnosing, addressing, and preventing injuries and illnesses through Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment.
