Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is a non-invasive, manual therapy that is used to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury or illness. It involves applying gentle pressure and movement to stretch a muscle, soft tissue, and joints for proper alignment and requires a keen understanding of the body’s musculoskeletal system.
OMM’s manual and energetic approach helps patients cut back on medication and avoid unnecessary surgeries. When incorporated into an individualized and comprehensive treatment plan your healing is likely to be much faster and more complete.
Under the osteopathic model, illness and pain indicate that the musculoskeletal system is out of balance, and recovery from disease depends upon restoring the functioning of this system. In sum, optimal functioning of the musculoskeletal system is essential to resolving disease and maintaining good health.
Conditions that can benefit from OMM include; back and neck pain, chronic joint pain, plantar fasciitis, tension headaches, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, asthma, sinus disorders, middle-ear infections, and more.
