The Iowa Osteopathic Medical Association is a voice for over 1,000 osteopathic physicians licensed in Iowa.
There are over 100,000 D.O.s in the United States practicing in all areas of medicine from neurology to sports medicine to dermatology to emergency medicine.
As complete physicians, D.O.s are able to prescribe medication and perform surgery.In addition, D.O.s have added training in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), a hands-on treatment tool that they can use to diagnose and treat injuries or illnesses. OMT can be used in conjunction with and sometimes in place of medication or surgery to restore mobility and function.
