Manual Medicine

Previous | Next

The purpose of this unit is to provide a web based module to educate medical students, residents, and faculty about the role of manual medicine in patient care.

Patients are increasingly aware of the benefits of manual medicine. According to a 2007 National Institutes of Health survey, 1 in 12 (8.6%) adults in the United States received manual medicine by either a chiropractor or osteopathic physician in the past year. This module is designed to familiarize the clinician with manual medicine.

This module is also for U-M Department of Family Medicine Residents on the SMO2 rotation.
