I had an appointment with my chiropractor today, and I asked him what he thinks about osteopathy. He began to tell me that osteopathic manipulation are exactly like chiropractic adjustments. Then he went on to say that DOs have really gotten away from manipulations and now practice more and more like allopathic physicians. He said the bad thing about being a DO is that the MD community does not really "recognize" DOs as physicians while the chiropractic community does not accept DOs as true users of manipulative medicine. He says MDs always refer patients to chiropractors for adjustments, but they never send patients to DOs. It was like he was telling me that DOs are a sham... In the end, he was telling me to forget about DO school and go to chiropractic school. (because according to him, both curriculums were very "similar") I don't know what to think about what he told me. For some reason I feel I should just disregard his comments. It seems to me that maybe his motives for telling me to go into chiropractics is because he feels threatened by DOs? Do many chiropractors (and other health professionals) really have that negative of an opinion of DOs?
