Rijo Philip, DO
Dr. Philip is specialty trained in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine with a focus on Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). A Texas native, Dr. Philip completed his undergraduate education at Texas A&M University and completed his medical degree and fellowship in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment at Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth.
He also earned a Master of Theology degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC and remained in Washington, DC for residency training. His combined medical and theological training has resulted in deeply rooted beliefs in a person-centered, holistic approach to medicine.
Dr. Philip espouses the tenets of osteopathic medicine: particularly, that the patient is a unit of body, mind, and spirit. He believes that the body has its own self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms, a concept increasingly supported through research exploring the science of how our body actually heals and functions. He is excited to be returning home to Texas and to sharing his patients’ healing journey toward better health.
