Neuromusculoskeletal medicine deals with the systems of the body as a whole, and practitioners believe that an imbalance between the nervous system, blood vessels, musculature and skeletal framework of the body causes diseases and disorders. A doctor of osteopathy (D.O.), or an osteopath is a physician who deals with the structure and function of the body, and uses manipulations to help the body heal itself. This holistic approach relies on all the neuromusculoskeletal systems of the body as an integral part of health. Osteopaths take a hands-on approach to disease, and though they are licensed to practice medicine, they use chiropractic-type adjustments or physical therapy in their treatment, and prefer to use medication and surgery as a last resort.
