PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI (Ben Caxton) — Crossing Rivers Health Clinic has a new addition to its team. The Clinic announced last week in a press release that Dr. Kenneth Valyo, Board-certified Doctor of Osteopathic Family Medicine, is now accepting patients at both clinic locations in Fennimore and Prairie du Chien. According to the American Osteopathic Association, doctors of osteopathic medicine regard the body as an integrated whole, rather than treating for specific symptoms only. Dr. Valyo focuses on all aspects of family medicine from wellness, early detection and prevention. He also offers osteopathic manipulative therapy, a technique used to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury where the patient’s muscles and joints are moved using stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. Osteopathic manipulative therapy can be used, practitioners say, to ease pain, promote healing, and increase overall mobility. Valyo received a Bachelor of Neuroscience Degree from Brown University, along with his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Degree from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine.
