Hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury.
WHAT IS OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATIVE TREATMENT (OMT)?
OMT is the therapeutic application of hands-on manual techniques to address changes in body structure and improve physiologic function. The techniques range from gentle palpation to high-pressure or rapid, forceful manipulation.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM OMT?
People of all ages, from newborns to senior adults, can benefit from osteopathic manipulative treatment. OMT can be helpful in alleviating pain and shortening hospital recovery time.
Beyond musculoskeletal and sports performance applications, OMT has also shown to help patients with a vast number of other health problems.
