Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMT)
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is a powerful hands-on treatment of the body performed by osteopathic physicians (DO’s) aimed at correcting anatomical dysfunctions by understanding abnormal anatomy and that the body is a unit. The treatment can be used on any structure including muscles, bones, joints, organs, connective tissue, fascia, nerves, blood vessels, etc… DO’s work by harnessing the body’s own self-healing mechanisms to make corrections. Treatments are not the same as massage, chiropractic, or other bodywork. The treatments can be used for muscloskeletal aches and pains, headaches/migraines, and many other problems.
