Essentially the same: Omt was term used in past; current use is omm. Both involve osteopathic techniques of manipulation, muscle techniques to restore body's self-healing properties. [images shows locations of osteopathic medical schools].

Osteopathic drs practice full range of medicine: FP & all the specialties. Osteopathic approach is holistic, hands-on approach

Like an M.D.!: A do can be a fully licensed physician and enter all specialities of medicine. There is some training in manipulative therapy in the do curriculum. More do's are primary care physicians than md, by percentage!

Same: There are just synonyms of one another.
