Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredOsteopathic practitioners are trained to use the musculoskeletal system as its own self-regulating tool for healing the body. They are trained to use their hands to actually find areas in the body holding tension. Like MDs, doctors of osteopathic medicine have full medical licenses. Since not all causes of pain can be identified on an x-ray, osteopathic treatments can be very helpful.
