The Osteopathic philosophical approach to the patient permeates the office as they care for patients.  Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine is the core of treatments that has helped so many of  Dr. Feely’s patients, either for improved health, longevity, acute or chronic structural dysfunction and/or disease states concluding that OMM has a viable place in most medical conditions and problems. Dr. Feely’s commitment to OMM and research has been shown by his strong support of DO-Touch.NET and it’s research activities as well as his hope that  more research studies on the clinical effects of OMM/OMT are developed within the medical community.   Dr. Feely has served the profession as president of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy, American Academy of Osteopathy, Illinois Osteopathic Medical Society, Osteopathic Cranial Foundation and FORCE.  Currently, he is a director of the American Osteopathic Foundation.

Sharing my skills with resident physicians and during rotations with DO students is a great pleasure! I also provide monthly lectures at Franciscan St. James Health Hospital about OMM/OMT sharing the rich legacy of Osteopathic techniques to residents and student physicians.
