WHAT IS OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE?

Osteopathic Medicine is a method used for chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain for patients suffering from low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, tendonitis, and osteoarthritis. OMT (Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment) uses a hands-on method that uses a more gentle approach than other conventional medical practices to treat other neurologic and respiratory conditions like headaches and migraines, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel, asthma, etc. Our physicians use this type of medicine to maximize the musculoskeletal structure to increase the overall functioning of the rest of the body’s systems.

Osteopathic Medicine involves hands-on stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance techniques to treat and prevent illness and injury. One of the main benefits of using OMT is treating muscle pain, structural and tissue abnormalities, joint misalignment, and overall improving the inter-workings of the body through a non-invasive approach. The techniques used by physicians practicing OMT is increasing the range of motions of the limbs of the body. OMT is different than massage therapy or chiropractic therapy using more comprehensive training of the body’s parts.
