For reference on Dr. Tripp and Osteopathic Medicine:

Dr. Tripp is in private practice with Dr. Goldman at Goldman/Tripp Osteopathic Healthcare in Sharon. Dr. Tripp is a traditional Osteopathic physician and Osteopathic manual medicine specialist. Osteopathic medicine is practiced by fully licensed physicians in the U.S. with a D.O. degree – a Doctor of Osteopathic medicine degree. The practice of Osteopathic manual medicine treatment is based on the essential relationship in all living things between structure and function, in other words, the natural interdependence between anatomy and physiology or the physics of the body and its chemistry.

Traditional Osteopathic physicians such as Dr. Tripp and Dr. Goldman use comprehensive and precisely detailed knowledge of anatomy and physiology to promote health and healing in their patients. They work gently with their hands to help your body restore optimal function based on optimal structure. Their medical specialty is therefore called Osteopathic manual medicine. They receive uniquely in-depth training in anatomy and physiology and their relationship within your body in the context of a full physician’s medical training. Their practice has been especially effective for, but not limited to, musculoskeletal and other structural issues, as well as chronic pelvic pain, headache, gastrointestinal problems, post-concussion syndrome, sleep disturbance, allergies, and many other health issues.
