Dr. Nally is an Osteopathic Physician or a “D.O.” – Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. As part of his medical school curriculum, osteopathic physicians receive extra training (over 200 additional hours) in the musculo-skeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones that make up two-thirds of its body mass. This training provides osteopathic physicians with a better understanding of the ways that an injury or illness in one part of your body can affect another. Many D.O.’s use osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) with other traditional medical procedures to diagnose and treat injury and illness. This makes them a favorite among Olympic athletes, sports teams, and personal fitness enthusiasts who focus on diet, exercise, weight management and spinal/joint manipulation.
