A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO FITNESS.
Functional medicine is a patient-centered, science-based approach to healthcare that focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying root causes of disease. Unlike traditional medicine, which often focuses on treating symptoms, functional medicine seeks to treat the whole person, taking into account factors such as genetics, lifestyle, environment, and social factors.
Osteopathic medicine is a distinct form of medical practice that focuses on the whole person, rather than just treating specific symptoms or illnesses. Osteopathic physicians, or DOs, are licensed medical professionals who have completed four years of medical school and extensive training in the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathic medicine is rooted in the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, and that by addressing the underlying causes of illness or dysfunction, rather than just treating symptoms, patients can achieve better health and well-being. This holistic approach to medicine is gaining popularity among patients who are looking for alternative treatments that are safe, effective, and natural.
