  MedFriendly.com: Doctor of Osteopathy
Osteopathy is an approach to medicine that uses common medical procedures, but it places a greater emphasis on understanding the relationship between the organs, muscles, nerves, tissues, bones (such as those that surround the spine), and tendons, than traditional medical training does.
The difference between a Doctor of Medicine (commonly abbreviated as M.D.) and a D.O. is that a D.O. focuses on osteopathy during their training, whereas an M.D. does not.
A Doctor of Osteopathy is also known as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, an osteopath, an osteopathic physician, a doctor, or a physician.

  Primary Care Physicians, Doctor of Chiropractic, and Doctor of Osteopathy
A medical doctor, doctor of chiropractic, or doctor of osteopathy is a practitioner of the healing arts who examines patients, analyzes the results of laboratory tests, diagnoses and treats the patient's medical condition, and advises the patient about methods of preventive health care.
Doctors differ from pure scientists in that medicine is a marriage of the biological sciences and the humanities and must apply his or her scientific knowledge in the context of patient care.
In addition to primary care-focused doctors of osteopathy, some D.O.’s are specialized in an area of medicine (as are some Medical Doctors) and may become Board Certified by completing a 3 to 4 year residency within the specialty area, such as orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, physiatry, or anesthesiology.

Osteopathy is the body of medicine that originally used strictly manipulative techniques for correcting somatic abnormalities thought to cause disease and inhibit recovery.
However, over the past century, osteopathy has embraced the full spectrum of medicine (to different degrees across the world), including the use of prescription drugs and surgery, in addition to manipulative techniques.
However, in the last two centuries of popular use in English-speaking and many other countries, the noun ''doctor'' has come to be used widely to refer to physicians (medical doctors), who are also granted use of the prefix as a courtesy title, whether or not they hold doctorates.
