Women’s Health Specialist to Join Columbus Medical Team
Dr. David Jones is one of only a few OB/GYN Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine in Ohio who provides OMT to pregnant women.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Women’s health specialist, Dr. David Jones will join Northeast Obstetricians and Gynecologists in Columbus, Ohio to provide women with Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), which treats both pregnancy-related and general symptoms including, but not limited to back pain, rib pain, headaches and sciatica through gentle stretching and manipulation of the muscles and joints in the body.
Dr. Jones said he went into OB/GYN because he enjoys the personal and long-term relationships that he is able to build with his patients.
“I chose this specialty because you get to know your patients throughout their life,” he said. “The ability to help others is incredibly rewarding, and I get to meet and form relationships with great people every day.”
A Columbus native, Dr. Jones received his Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from Miami University in Oxford, and then continued his research project for one year at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. In 2009, he received his medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. He then returned home to Columbus to complete his residency in OB/GYN at Doctors Hospital and Grant Medical Center. Dr. Jones is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Osteopathic physicians attend medical school and are licensed to practice medicine in all 50 states, but unique to their training is a holistic methodology.
“My goal is for my patients to be able to understand their own health and how to improve upon that,” said Jones. “The body has an innate ability to heal itself and I hope to assist my patients and allow their body to do just that.”
OMT is one of the most unique and distinctive tools of osteopathic medicine and can provide many patient benefits. Additionally, Dr. Jones has an interest in minimally invasive surgery, infertility, and ultrasound.
