Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment
Through Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine can use their hands to diagnose illness and injury. By realignment, restoration of normal structural mechanics, and other manual treatments, we encourage your body’s natural tendency toward self-healing. DOs have a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. This is the holistic approach Osteopathic physicians are known for.
As part of their education, DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. Using OMT, your DO can effectively treat your muscles and joints to relieve pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help provide relief for patients with asthma, sinus disorders, chest congestion, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, and many other ailments. In many cases, OMT can be used to complement, or even replace, drugs or surgery.
By combining the latest advances in medical technology with OMT and other integrative methods, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine are able to offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
