So the first thing we need to know is what “osteopathic” medicine is. In Dr. Jennings explanation, “It’s a medical system of care that promotes the body’s innate ability to heal itself.   We manage the medical side: the medicines, procedures, surgeries and physical treatments similar to chiropractic but also take into account related factors: what you’re eating, are you getting enough rest? Exercise? I partner with the patient to discover a path to wellness.”So the first thing we need to know is what “osteopathic” medicine is.

“Most of my patient visits are for general health issues; getting their blood pressure checked and under control, diabetes issues, injuries and infections. I also offer counseling for depression, grief management, anxiety, bipolar disorder and addiction. Conflict management, marriage issues, parenting challenges and strengthening relationships all are issues I address through a few books I’ve written to guide patients through counseling sessions.”

Office is across the street from the train station.

I asked Dr. Jennings what she felt was the most significant thing she wanted to share and after but a brief pause she said that, “Wholeness and wellness are easier to achieve than you might think. Sometimes it’s only a few, often minor life modifications that can make a big difference in how you feel.” Dr. Dena Jennings is a rare and respected addition to our community and we welcome her to Orange.
