Naprapathy is a branch of medicine that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions. Doctors of Naprapathic Medicine are connective tissue specialists who use the science of Neuromyology (the study of nerve and muscle).  Training is similar to medical students in many areas, though they do not do hospital rotations. They do not prescribe drugs or perform any invasive procedures. Naprapaths are highly trained in gentle manual teqniques, natural/botanical medicine, nutritional consulting and supplementation. They are also trained in detecting more serious conditions (i.e. cancer, surgical candidates) that may produce similar symptoms, but would require a more aggressive medical intervention. These patients are typically referred back to their primary care physicians. Come and make an appoitment with Dr. Richard Biscegile Dn Naprapath in North Shore. IL at the Center of Holistic Medicine.
