Surgeons that are trying to work in this specific field must develop very specific knowledge of medical technology and ethics, especially since they must learn how to work quickly under pressure. Surgeons in the profession diagnose and assess injuries through testing, although, there are times when treatment can be done non-invasively. Some non-invasive treatments include splinting and rehabilitative exercise. Due to the variety of specialties for Orthopedic Surgery, the time allotted for training may very more for some than for

In physical therapy, patients come to the clinic with a long list of symptoms and a specific mechanism of injury. It is the physical therapists job to take this information and form hypotheses of what pathology may be affecting the patient. With the patient that has been presented in this case, a full history shows a very good description of symptoms and what the patient remembers happening when the injury occurred. With this history, an examination plan can be created in order to make this examination process thorough, but efficient.
“The purpose of a doctor or any human in general should not be to simply delay the death of a patient, but to increase the person’s quality of life.” Orthopedic surgeons treat a number of conditions that affect the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. The training to become an orthopedic surgeon requires multiple years of hard work and studying, but in the end, the success is worth all the stress and struggle experienced on the way. Most doctors must dedicate every fiber of their being, countless hours of work, and years of stress in their chosen profession. Medicine is only for those who can’t imagine doing anything else.
Currently there are two main types of licensed physicians in the United States. The first is the medical doctor or the allopathic doctor. About 95% of licensed doctors have been educated at one of over 120 allopathic medical schools and have thus obtained a medical doctor degree (M.D.). The second type of doctor, the doctor of osteopathy, is less common. Osteopathic doctors make up about five percent of the physicians in the nation (Peters 730). Although this represents a significant amount of physicians many people are unfamiliar with the second type of doctor. In a 1981 the AOA (American Osteopathic Association) released the results of a survey about public familiarity with the osteopathic doctor. Only 20% of the 1,003 individuals surveyed, age eighteen and over, were familiar with the D.O. (doctor of osteopathy) abbreviation. Furthermore only 50% of those that were familiar with the title could correctly give the unabbreviated version (Gevitz 154-55).

In the United States, there are two kinds of physicians that practice medicine. The Osteopathic medicine is practiced by the Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) while Allopathic medicine is practiced by the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). Due to more physicians hold the degree of MD than the DO's degree, few people recognize Osteopathic Physicians.
Shadowing Dr. Truong sparked my interest in osteopathic medicine. Then I started to explore this profession by reading books. The more I learned, the more I found it is what I want to do in my future practice. Not only do I want to treat patients and their diseases, but I also want to address underlying causes and fix them. I want to specialize in OMT and use my hand to bring instant relief to suffering patients. I also learned the training in osteopathic medicine places emphasize in primary care, which is my interest because it allows me to develop a long-term relationship with patients, address the full range of their needs, ...
