Joy Palmer, DO

Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Manipulative Medicine


A native of northern Maine, I come to Liberty Mountain Medical Group bringing a love of working with people and of teaching physician residents the specialty of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. My undergraduate program at Marquette University planted the seeds for working with my hands and the importance of educating patients. My Osteopathic medical education and training instilled a passion for discovering the Health in patients, that place in all of us where healing and growth are centered. I am interested in outcomes based clinical research assessing the benefit of osteopathic manipulation, as well as how curriculum development in a residency training program impacts career direction. I welcome patients of all ages and with the fantastic team at LMMG, look forward to working with you.
