Nearly every day, medical science unveils new discoveries from brain scans to anti-cancer drugs. In the midst of these wonders, it’s easy to forget that sometimes what patients really need is a healing touch.
Osteopathic physicians haven’t forgotten.
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 (DO) will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance.
The physicians who practice OMT are Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs). Both DOs and MDs are fully licensed physicians. They provide a full range of services, from prescribing drugs to performing surgery, and they use the latest medical tools. But DOs offer something special—their unique approach to patient care.
DO's who provide OMT:
Teach patients how to prevent illness and injury by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Look at the whole person to reach a diagnosis without focusing just on symptoms.
Help the body to heal itself.
Believe that all parts of the bodywork together and influence one another. DOs are specially trained in the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones).
Are trained to perform osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT).
Osteopathic Manipulation (OMT)is used to:
Accelerate healing from sports or other musculoskeletal injuries
Optimize mobility in the joints
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 brings an important dimension to standard medical care.
