Dr. Smythe is a board certified osteopathic family physician (AOBFP) who develops meaningful healing relationships with a focus on osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to support the body's innate healing capacity.
For any medical condition, osteopathic physicians (DOs) understand that each individual expresses health and disease differently. DOs are trained to recognize changes in body structure that can alter function and which may contribute to disease. In addition to general medical education and training, DOs are trained in osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). OMT is the therapeutic application of manual techniques by an osteopathic physician to address the changes in body structure and improve physiologic function.
