OMT is a form of non invasive hands on manual medicine which focuses on treating the body’s interconnected system of bones, muscles, and nerves. Osteopathic physicians (DO’s) have undergone special training in the musculoskeletal system. They use their hands to treat patients by applying gentle pressure, resistance, and stretching in attempts to alleviate pain, promote improved mobility of joints, and facilitate the body’s innate ability to heal. Some of the techniques used by Osteopathic physicians include Myofascial release, Muscle energy, Counter strain, and Soft tissue stretching. Here at Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation our physicians use a combination of the latest advances in medical technology along with the healing touch of OMT when appropriate.
