Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, your osteopathic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance.
Who can benefit from OMT?
OMT can help people of all ages and backgrounds. The treatment can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain. But it can also help patients with a number of other health problems such as:
-Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. In this way, OMT bring an important dimension to standard medical care.
Dr. Brian and Mark Ireland, and Dr. Thomas Anderson are Osteopathic physicians who are currently practicing OMT on a daily basis and look forward to offering these proven medical techniques to you and your family.
