What training do practitioners have?

You will know that you are dealing with the best osteopathic practitioner if he underwent extensive training, and has all the necessary qualifications and educational requirements to perform the procedure safely and correctly. Go for someone who has completed at least 5 years of university training in pathology, physiology, anatomy, osteopathic techniques, as well as general medical diagnosis. He should be able to show his Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.
A good osteopathic doctor has also completed 300-500 hours of instruction studying the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the body as well as 1000 hours of clinical practice. He should also be capable of showing proof that he has completed 1-year internship, which covers all medical care areas, like internal medicine, family and general practice, surgery, pediatrics, and gynecology or obstetrics.
