Why Study Osteopathy?

The master of science in osteopathy program offers students a deep understanding of osteopathic principles, skills and techniques. Osteopathy is one of the most complete health care systems in the world. It is a distinctive form of medical practice. The practice of osteopathy utilizes all available modern manual medicine techniques to assess injury and diseases of muscles, bones, joints and nerves. It also offers the added benefit of hands-on diagnosis and treatment through a system of therapy known as osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). Osteopaths understand how all the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. They focus special attention on the musculoskeletal system, which reflects and influences the condition of all other body systems.
