Our body contains an interconnected system of 206 bones, 600 muscles, 360 joints and thousands of nerves. Damage to any part of this system can cause pain, numbness and restricted movement. With the right treatment, our bodies can recover from minor injuries without the need for drugs or surgery.
Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) is a type of hands-on treatment that involves a series of gentle movements done by a physician to diagnose and correct restrictions to normal movement that could negatively impact a person’s overall health if left untreated. Using OMT, your physician will utilize different techniques of moving your muscles and joints to stretch, apply pressure or add resistance, depending on what is required for your condition.
People of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy. Although OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, it can help patients with with other health problems sucha as asthma, migraines and sinus disorders.
