Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment
Through Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, DOs use their hands to diagnose illness and injury and encourage your body’s natural tendency toward self-healing.
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine have a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others.
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, 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.
