Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) for Prevention and Treatment
Our dedication to improving patient outcomes includes offering services to promote healing the whole person. Some of our internal medicine physicians have received Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degrees, including specific OMT training, focused on the musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) includes stretching, gentle pressure and resistance techniques that can help treat and prevent illnesses or injuries. OMT has been shown to relieve pain, promote healing and increase mobility with certain acute and chronic conditions. When used properly, OMT can complement and even replace medications and surgery, particularly for the following disorders:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Menstrual pain
- Sinus disorders
Additionally, hands-on techniques such as OMT have been clinically proven to be effective in relieving low back pain.
