Where I come from most DO's don't use much of the OMT. I have heard from many students that the techniques they learn worked particularly well in the arthritic/elderly population. Has anyone ever heard of an office where the DO makes 1 hour appointments where he/she spends the time doing a complete OMM workup? With the general public tending to shy away from medicine and the constant problems with the elderly and medication I would think this could eventually be a very profitable business. People want their physician to take the pain away... they don't really care how. And one more thing.. would DO's get compensated for visits if they are OMM oriented? I don't see why not since osteopathic medicine is a federally recognized field.
