What Is Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine?
Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is an innovative way to address chronic pain and prevent further illness and injuries. This set of techniques involves gently moving and applying pressure to the muscles and joints. These movements not only help to decrease your pain, but they also promote healing and increase mobility. Our team would be happy to discuss the ins and outs of this treatment option should you consider it for yourself.
Conditions OMT Can Address
OMT is typically used to relieve many forms of muscle pain and chronic discomfort. This hands-on technique can significantly improve your quality of life and ability to move freely. However, traditional back pain is not the only condition we use OMT to treat. This treatment strategy also stimulates blood flow, improves balances, and decrease joint restriction. As such, OMT may be an excellent solution for the following ailments:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Asthma and sinus problems
- Menstrual pain
