Osteopathic medicine is a system of medicine based on the theory that disturbances in the musculoskeletal system affect other bodily parts and cause disorders that can be corrected by techniques used in conjunction with therapeutic procedures. The goal of the Osteopathic Section of the Society of Critical Care Medicine is to support research and educate the Society on matters pertaining to osteopathic medicine and the practice of multiprofessional critical care medicine.
