I apologize for posting this in more than one forum (I also posted this in the physician’s forum), but I really need some help. I would be soo greatly appreciative to anyone who answers these. Here’s my original post:
I am a pre-med student who is currently enrolled in a public speaking course. I am going to be doing an informative speech on osteopathic medicine. I figured this would be a perfect opportunity to explore some of the differences between osteopathic and allopathic medicine, since I am still unsure as to which I will pursue when the time comes. For part of my speech, I would like to include some first-hand knowledge from a DO, a student enrolled in an osteopathic program, or someone else who would be very knowledgeable about the topic. So if there is anyone kind enough to help me out a little bit and answer a couple questions, I would greatly appreciate it. The answers do not have to be lengthy at all. Thanks!
- What are the core differences in philosophy, if any, between osteopathic and allopathic physicians?
- What types of conditions can be treated with osteopathic manipulative techniques? "
