Prescribing drugs I have been in Oriental Medicine for 15 years now. I predict that in 10-15 years DOM's will be regarded in the medical community and by the lay public much the way Doctors of Osteopathy are now; and the scope of practice will be like a DO's. It is headed that way because there is no seperation between Oriental and Western medicine anywhere else in the world but here in the USA. Iv therapy,point injection, lab and other diagnostic procedures, prescription drugs are all part of Oriental Medicine everywhere else in the world.

 There have been many times in my practice that looking an x-ray would have been very very helpful. On one level, we are trained to treat on the basis of observation and many schools do not offer instruction in radiology, but on the other, having an extra pair of eyes would be mighty helpful.

Manipulation and/or mobilization I feel that it would be very beneficial for insurance companies to include manipulation/and-or/mobilization as an effective therapy for western medicine. There is too much emphasis on medicating patients and/or surgery to correct problems. Along with manipulation I also believe a more natural way to health with herbal medicine is much better than present day doctors giving presciption medications to patient. I am having a hard time with Depression and the side effects of ssri's. I would like to discontinue these medications and begin a regimine of manipulation and herbal treatment for my particular case. I also suffer from Fibromayalgia and I would welcome any information you may have that has been used effectively to treat this horrific disorder. Is there an herbal combination that would reduce or eliminate the effects of this disorder. I eagerly await a response. Thank You!

 i think performing minor surgery is WAY outside our scope of practice

Herbal remedies I think that most of us who have been in the field for a long time perform many of the tasks of a primary care practitioner without having the support to do so. The areas of increased responsibility that I feel would help in addition to the herbal remedies that we already use are ordering tests (xrays, mri's, etc.) and giving physicals (or similar) and doing manipulation or mobilization and massage techniques which if Chiropractor's are going to get to do acupuncture after 100 - 300 hours of training then we should be able to take courses and do manipulations. And for what it is worth when I started in the late 70's the first thing I was taught was neck adjustments which I do not do but it goes to show you that it can be learned.

Manipulation and/or mobilization Acupuncture and manipulation and/or mobilization prove highly complementary. Muskuloskeletal work furthermore does seem to enhance the effect of an acupuncture treatment by "waking up" the qi flowing through the channels and thus allowing easier access to the points and connecting pathways.
