OSTEOPRACTIC is a subspecialty in physical therapy that identifies a particular skill-set and education possessed by the treating therapist. 

An OSTEOPRACTOR is a physical therapist, medical doctor, or doctor of osteopathic medicine that has completed an extensive, evidence-based post-graduate training program in manual therapy for the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities.  

Only after completing the intensive training program consisting of the Dry Needling series, Spinal Manipulation series, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Extremity Manipulation and Differential Diagnosis & Multi-Modal Management as well as passing strict written and practical exams for each, will a clinician earn the Diploma in Osteopractic and be able to call themselves an Osteopractor.
