The body is powerful and can heal itself if given the right conditions.

Medicina Urbana promotes the body’s natural tendency towards self-healing through modern, holistic primary health care. We offer both the best of standard medical care and osteopathic techniques to the Southwest Detroit community. As an Osteopathic Physician, Dr. Beard diagnoses and treats patients with his hands helping to resolve muscle and joint pain. This helps promote healing and improve overall mobility.

Medicina Urbana is located at the corner of Vernor Highway and Campbell Street along one of Mexicantown’s most active corridors of culture and commerce. Southwest Detroit is one of Detroit’s most vibrant neighborhoods, a Mexican-American community since the early 1900s.
