  • After a car accident in 1996, I experienced constant brain fog and headaches.  After only three treatments with Dr. Kristin Foley my brain fog completely cleared and my headaches have greatly diminished.  I am truly grateful to her and the life altering work that she does.

  • Dr. Foley has treated my musculoskeletal and general medical problems for years. He always helps and combines osteopathic with conventional medical care. Dr. Foley is caring and skilled. I would recommend him to anyone and have done so numerous times. He has also helped my daughter with allergies and a leg length discrepancy which is no longer there.

  • I’ve had severe foot pain because I am a dancer and had two foot operations, acupuncture, physical therapy, orthotics (everything!). But nothing worked until I came to see Dr. Foley. He was the only doctor able to make me feel good again, and not just for my feet and legs – my whole body – my whole being. That sounds corny but it’s true. He not only re-aligns me physically but he removes any “energy obstructions” that I may have. I’m not into all the new age energy healing stuff but whatever Dr. Foley does with his slight painless manipulations works.

  • After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and a number of other ailments, I’ve worked with many practitioners to regain my health. Dr. Foley’s osteopathic treatments are the glue that brings everything together for me and allows me to live an active and productive life.

  • After an osteopathic treatment I have less spasms in my neck, right arm, and hand. By seeing Dr. Foley I can go a week or more without any spasms or pain at all. Otherwise, I am in constant severe pain.

  • Dr. Kristin Foley has been a godsend for me. I arrived at her door two years ago with debilitating head pain. I had seen a cranio-sacral therapist for four years, and there were improvements. However, that person confessed that she did not have what I needed for further progress. Kristin was so keenly aware of what I needed the first time she examined me. She has been able to do what was necessary without question to bring me relief and stability. She is sensitive, perceptive, and effective.

  • Boston Osteopathic is the best osteopathy practice I have experienced (out of several). The atmosphere is truly peaceful, calm, and relaxing.  The receptionist, Ambi, is very friendly and helpful. I saw Dr. Riggert, who is the best osteopath I have ever seen. She is very talented and professional, really listens carefully, and is calm, encouraging, and positive. The benefit of her treatment lasted longer than those of other osteopaths I have visited. Wish I lived closer!

  • My treatment here eliminated the TMJ- as there seemed no other way to treat it. The Rheumatic was treated with medicine by my Rheumatic physician, also a D.O. The treatment here allowed me to move more easily, and it is now in remission.

  • I have been under a lot of long term stress and needed help as it was taking a toll on my health. Dr. Foley has gently yet powerfully helped my body relax and heal. Recently I had a really bad bronchial asthma attack that had me using my inhalers and nebulizer many times a day with little improvement. I saw Dr. Foley for a planned appointment and after working on my lungs and body I took my first deep breath in weeks. I have not had to use my inhalers or nebulizer at all since that day!

  • It helps. Bill is nice and funny. The homeopathy provided helped a lot too. I enjoy coming to Bill’s sessions.

    Riley J. Newton, MA
  • Dr. Foley takes time to listen carefully to my symptoms and feelings before the treatment starts and gears that treatment to what your body needs. Dr. Foley is one of the rare doctors who really listens.

    Margaret G.Westford, MA
  • I am 7 years still recovering from a neck injury sustained in a bus accident.  Dr. Foley has helped me a ton.  He knows his stuff!  Half my family comes here now!

    Carol R.Needham, MA
  • So comforting and amazingly helpful after I was hit by a car while walking.  Very kind, caring people.

    Patty H.Norwell, MA
  • I feel so much better today after my treatment.  I finally had a decent nights sleep – hard to believe after just one osteopathic treatment.  You are a gifted doctor.

    Diane B.Plymouth, MA
  • Dr. Kristin in 4 visits, with some suggested PT, totally reversed/ended my years of discomfort that I sought help with for 25 years!

Our Mission

As a traditional osteopathic practice we strive to restore health rather than fight disease. Our mission is to continue the work of Andrew Taylor Still, MD, the father of osteopathy, who stated that physicians should devote themselves to caring for a person’s Health. This uncovered a truth that has provided a guiding principle for the osteopathic profession.

We practice minimally invasive medicine. First we use treatments that are as natural as possible and have the lowest risk for side effects while saving medications and surgery as a last resort. For all our patients we provide nutrition and exercise advice as well as perform osteopathic manipulation. If needed, we will add supplements, herbs, medications, injections, or whatever else necessary to help our patients get better. We will also refer to both conventional (neurology, orthopedics, etc.) and alternative (acupuncture, homeopathy, etc.) medicine specialists when appropriate.

Our physicians utilize the full range of Osteopathic modalities, with an emphasis on Cranial Osteopathy and Biodynamics. Our practice welcomes patients of all ages and provides osteopathic care for the full spectrum of their healthcare concerns.
