Q: How can osteopathic medicine help my cold and sinus symptoms? A: All physicians (M.D.s and D.O.s) get the same general training in medical school. Osteopathic physicians also get extensive training called osteopathic manipulative medicine, which focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its connection from head to toe and from outside in. Osteopathic physicians learn many ways - collectively called osteopathic manipulative treatment - to use their hands to find restrictions and blockages in the body and correct them to improve function.
