As osteopathic medical students, we learn to view the human body as a whole unit consisting of body, mind, and spirit. We are taught that all systems are interconnected, that structure is related to function, and that the body is self-regulating and self-healing.1 With our hands, we can improve functionality in our future patients. For most first-year osteopathic medical students these concepts are new. We tend to be skeptical, as we have not yet experienced osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) at its full potential in clinical scenarios. And, in my experience, my allopathic peers are often cynical when I share what I learned in my OMM laboratories.
