As part of their education, some physicians receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. Using Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment (OMT), your doctor can effectively treat your muscles and joints to relieve pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment, involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, your physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.

OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help provide relief for patients with asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome and migraines. 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, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
