Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment is a hands-on care approach central to osteopathic medicine. It involves trained physicians using their hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses or injury. The process includes stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance techniques to move a patient’s muscles and joints using specific hand placements.

This therapy form aims to alleviate pain, restore function, and promote health and well-being. Its uniqueness lies in its emphasis on the interrelationships of structure and function within the body. Osteopathic manipulative treatment targets the musculoskeletal system but also considers other body systems’ influence on health status.

While it has broad applications, it shows particular effectiveness in managing musculoskeletal discomforts like lower back pain. The treatment is typically tailored according to individual patient needs, considering factors such as age, physical condition, and distinct medical history.
