Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, also known as OMT or OMM, brings something unique and modern to traditional medicine. Concentrating on the bones, nerves, muscles and organs within a body, this type of treatment is very hands on. Our OMM department understands the deep philosophies behind this type of treatment and our trained professionals offer the very best in osteopathic manipulative medicine.
Our osteopathic manipulative treatment consists of using the hands to find, diagnose, prevent and heal illnesses, ailments and injuries. Our osteopathic physicians will use techniques such as gentle pressure, creating resistance and stretching muscles and joints, as part of the treatment process. Along with unique forms of manipulation, such as cranial-sacral, myofascial release and ligamentous release. Although these techniques are over 130 years old, this type of medicine is only recently becoming one of the most popular types of treatment in the US today.
Usually osteopathic manipulative treatment is used to relieve pain, but it can also be used to help diagnose conditions and injuries. As the treatment concentrates on the entire musculoskeletal system, there are a wide range of ailments it can help with including:
- Sinus disorders and migraines
- Menstrual pain
- Decreased mobility (in conditions such as arthritis)
It can also promote healing and ease pain, which is what makes this type of treatment perfect for people of all ages and backgrounds. In some cases, this OMM will be used before of after surgery or even as a replacement to surgery.
We ensure that all of our patients are cared for to the very best of our abilities, whilst also being informed of the different processes along the way. We pride ourselves in the high level of healthcare we provide, by our dedicated osteopathic manipulative physicians. Let our friendly team explain OMT in more detail to see if this is the right treatment plan for you.
