Dr. Keith Swan has the following 2 specialties
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.
- General Practice
A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Review by: ChrystyneI suffered for years with numerous problems caused by an inoperable pituitary tumor cancer. I was told by an endocrinologist I had to live with this & was given medication which caused seizures. Through Dr. Swan's expertize in osteopathic manipulation and acupuncture I returned to health. Dr. Swan ALWAYS brought head, neck & back injuries back into alignment. My jaw was pulled out of alignment during dental surgery, and Dr. Swan manipulated my jaw back into position. Dr. Swan & his staff are superb. I have recommended Dr. Swan to many, many people over the years.
