How to find an osteopath who does hands on treatment

Does anyone know how to find an osteopath (DO) doctor who does hands on manipulative treatment? A lot of DO doctors are just general practitioners and don't use hands on therapy, but I've been to a DO who does hands on therapy. Anyone have any ideas on how to find more?

    That will list the various disciples of medicine by state.
    However, that is not a 100% inclusive list, it will list only those doctors who are official registered with Spine-Health.

    If that does not provide you with enough, you should talk to your primary care doctor and have them recommend one for you.
    I've been to two DOs and the one with the hand manipulation and myofascial massage did help me.

    dilauro, that's my point. A doctor search shows tons of DOs. But there's no way to do a search for specifically a DO who does hands on therapy or osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Even through another website I found that lists doctors with OMT specialties, when I call them they have no idea what I'm talking about when I say "hands on therapy".
