I just posted that subject because I've never started a thread before. Kinda new. Is the war over yet? Whew. Well, I'm sure as long as we all know why and how we got into osteopathic medicine, we can fend off attacks such as the ones that were played out. So I'd like to recover from the exhaustion and ask you all a question- why did you choose osteopathy? What got you interested? What is going to keep you interested? I guess I'll start- I've been treated mostly by DOs during my 24 years on this here planet. Thankful that OMT has relieved much of my neck pain. I liked the holistic philosophy, which closely mirrors my own outlook on life and my own stream of logic. I also think it has a lot to offer in the fields of primary care and public health. Well, with the growing elderly population and an anticipated increase in the prevalence of chronic disease, we have a lot to offer our patients with regard to health maintenance and holistic perspective. And we probably have much to learn from them as well. I am proud of my future and current colleagues in this field of medicine and best of luck to you all in the future.
