Zachary Musgrave, DO, joins CHRISTUS St. Vincent
Pojoaque Primary Care
Zachary Musgrave, DO, has joined CHRISTUS St. Vincent Pojoaque Primary Care as a family practice physician with a special interest in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
Osteopathic physicians (DO's) are fully-trained doctors and licensed to prescribe medications and practice in all specialties of medicine, ranging from primary care to surgery. The osteopathic philosophy of medicine considers the health of the whole person, the body's ability to self-heal, and the connection of all the organs systems in the body to one another. Additionally, DO's are trained in osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), a hands-on method of diagnosing, treating, and preventing illness and/or injury in their patients.
OMT may be used for musculoskeletal problems, such as neck or back pain, tension headaches, and scoliosis. However, it is also very effective for other, non-musculoskeletal problems, including: asthma, breastfeeding difficulties, TMJ dysfunction, migraine headaches, post-concussive syndrome, and pregnancy related aches & pains. OMT encompasses a wide variety of techniques, and can be an extremely gentle treatment that is safe for all ages.
Dr. Musgrave earned a DO at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth. He then completed internship and residency with the University of New England Family Practice Residency Program in Portland, Maine.
After practicing for 2 years at Maine General Health Associates in Oakland, Maine, Dr. Musgrave completed a fellowship in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at Mercy Health Partners in Muskegon, Michigan.
To schedule an appointment with Dr. Musgrave, call Pojoaque Primary Care at (505) 455-1962.
