Taking Charge of Your Health

HOST: Steven has a question for Dr. Michael
White: What is the difference between and MD and a DO? DO stands for a Doctor of
Osteopathic Medicine So it is simply a different
philosophy in how you treat a patient. It’s a belief
that the body has an inherent property of being able to, in a way, heal itself in that if we restore the body to its original state that people can heal quicker.
What’s that the practical difference between the two. I think that the DOs are a little bit more willing to talk
to people, they’re little bit more willing to touch a person because we actually
have to learn manipulative medicine DO school involves the same amount of years. It involves the same amount of pre-medical
training, and it also requires a residency following osteopathic
medical training.
