My name is Lorane Dick, D.O. and I am an osteopathic physician in private practice in the San Dimas area for 20 years. I specialize in osteopathic manipulative medicine, preventive health care, and pain management. My practice emphasizes natural remedies, personal growth and healing, and life style management. These approaches are particularly suited to people who’ve experienced trauma, sensitivity to medications, or health problems unassisted by conventional medical approaches.

Dr. Lorane Dick
In my practice as an osteopathic physician I utilize the hands-on diagnosis and treatment of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine to seek the body’s input for priorities and overall direction for a treatment plan. I chose to become an osteopathic physician to prepare myself to be knowledgeable and skillful as a physician, in caring for the whole patient, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. My mission is to listen to a person describe their symptoms and difficulties, and to discern what will best fill their needs. As an osteopathic physician, I am seeking to diagnose imbalances and deficiencies that decrease the body’s abilities to prevent disease, and enable the body to heal itself. I listen for roadblocks and resources, and direct the body to utilize its resources to transform any unmet needs and to provide health. The patient and the physician together create a team for progress toward the patient’s optimal health care, using blood tests, x-rays, imaging studies, and specialty referrals as necessary.

My osteopathic medical practice is an eclectic variety of patients and treatment styles emphasizing integrated health care utilizing the Cranial Concept, Counterstrain, Muscle Energy and Myofascial Release techniques and treatment.
