    I'm a SportTherapy Student at York University in Toronto, and am writing a paper on Osteopathy and its use for injured athletes. Looking for info on this topic. Any recommendations? Thanks,

    I wish I could help, but I'm not really at that liberty. However, I am an athletic trainer who is working towards medical school admission and I would love to hear some of your results. Good luck.

    Hello there,

    Like psi, I can't offer much help but I can give you some idea in the meantime. I am a physical therapist in an outpatient orthopedics sports medicine clinic who is going to osteopathic medical school this fall. I use many manual therapy techniques on our injured athletes, many of which are osteopathic or osteopathic-derived. I use them regularly as indicated and they work very well in addition to regular exercise for whatever body part is being treated. But I too would be very interested in hearing what information specifically D.O. students or D.O.'s have on this topic.

    Maris-
    I am an athletic training student and the sports medicine staff at the university I attend is composed primarily of osteopathic physicians. What kind of athletic injuries are you writing on? Specific body region? Chronic? Acute? I may be able to ask the physicians on our staff if they know of any good sources.

    I am a second year medical student at UHS-College of Osteopathic Medicine and I graduated with a degree in physical therapy and practiced 3 years in orthopedics. I am also a certified strength and conditioning specialist. I am currently the sports med president here on campus. So...if you want to email me [email protected] go ahead.
    What is sport therapy??? Never heard of it, sounds new. Is there any certification?
