OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATIVE THERAPY

Illustration

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
As part of their education, DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, the body’s intricate system of muscles, nerves and bones. This advanced training provides DOs with a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others.
When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. In this way, DOs bring an important dimension to standard medical care.

Benefits of OMT

    Asthma.
    Sinus disorders.
    Carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Menstrual pain.

Through OMT, physicians manually apply a specific amount of pressure to different regions in the body. These techniques can help:
● Treat structural and tissue abnormalities.● Relieve joint restriction and misalignment.● Restore muscle and tissue balance.● Promote the overall movement of blood flow throughout the body.
