Osteopathic manipulative treatment

Osteopathic manipulative treatment providers use their hands to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury. Your osteopathic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. Osteopathic manipulative treatment is used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. It is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help patients with a number of other health problems such as: asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines and menstrual pain.
