os·te·o·path(ŏs′tē-ə-păth′) also os·te·op·a·thist (ŏs′tē-ŏp′ə-thĭst)
1. In the United Kingdom and some other countries, a skilled practitioner of osteopathic manual techniques who is not a physician.
2. Usage Problem A licensed physician trained in a school of osteopathic medicine. Not in technical use.
Usage Note: Unlike the therapeutic professionals called osteopaths in other countries, practitioners of osteopathic medicine in the United States are licensed physicians. The use of the term osteopath to refer to such a practitioner is thus incorrect. The term osteopathic physician is preferred.
