PhD in Osteopathic Clinical Sciences

Physical Therapists: become specialized in disability & chronic pain management

A recent research at North Texas University (published in Journal of the American Osteopathic Association) demonstrated that 6 sessions of manual osteopathy (in 6 weeks) done on 500 patients reduced their disability and chronic low back by over 50%!

Manual osteopathy offers a proven, safe and effective treatment system for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Over 25% of osteopathic manual practitioners are physical therapists. 

 By offering manual osteopathic treatments you help your patients recover from chronic pain.
