Hands-On Care

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a series of hands-on techniques used to help diagnose illness or injury and facilitate your body's natural tendency toward self-healing.  

Using OMT, your Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) can effectively treat your muscles and joints to relieve pain, promote healing and increase mobility.  

Benefits of OMT

*

OMT can help provide relief in acute and chronic conditions, including:

  • Muscle and Joint Pain

  • Sinus disorders

  • Migraines

  • Digestive disorders

  • Sports Injuries

  • Back pain

  • Ear infections

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Repetitive Stress injuries

In many cases, OMT can be used to complement or replace medication and surgery.  

The OMT Difference

Before performing OMT, your DO will complete a physical exam and gather information about your medical history, lifestyle and environment.  

Using OMT, your DO will move your muscles and joints using techniques that may incorporate:

  • Stretching

  • Gentle Pressure

  • Light resistance

OMT is set apart from chiropractic and physical therapy techniques in may ways:

  • OMT is performed by DOs who are fulling licensed physicians.

  • DOs are trained to treat the whole person, not just symptoms.

  • OMT can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and help promote self-healing.
