(OMT) Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Alleviate Symptoms and Achieve Better HealthOMT Treamtment

Sometimes the best treatment a physician can recommend or provide is 100% natural and non-invasive. Osteopathic medicine is a patient-focused approach to health care based on the idea that our body’s systems are interrelated.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) does not just refer to one treatment or therapy. It is an entire system designed to restore a body’s normal function, where muscles, bones, and nerves work together harmoniously.

OMT can be used to ease pain, promote healing, and increase overall mobility. Treatment can be used alongside or instead of medications or surgery. For some people, it relieves symptoms even after medication or surgery hasn’t worked.

How OMT Treatment Works

Osteopathic manipulative treatment involves moving patients’ muscles and joints using techniques. These include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. The targeted movements and pressure work in conjunction to release the restriction and tightness in nerves and muscles.

Benefits of OMT

Osteopathic manipulative therapy treats conditions that affect every system in the body. By realigning the body and restoring balance to bones and muscles, OMT allows your entire body to work better as a whole.

Using OMT, Dr. Stemmerman improves circulation, prevents health problems, soothes tight muscles, relieves joint stiffness, and improves range of motion. At Infinity Medical Clinic, our focus on the whole person prevents, diagnoses, and treats illness and injury, using nonsurgical, hands-on OMT to encourage the body’s natural healing process.

Patients suffering from the following conditions can experience significant improvements when receiving osteopathic treatment:


If you’re experiencing back pain, you may be concerned that invasive procedures or surgery will be necessary for relief. Fortunately, osteopathic manipulative treatment is a noninvasive option that can enhance your quality of life.

In addition to alleviating back pain, osteopathic manipulative treatment offers other advantages. It can be beneficial for individuals suffering from chronic pain, breathing difficulties, sports injuries, and arthritis. As you receive treatment for your back pain, you may also observe improvements in other areas of your body.

If you’re struggling with tight muscles and joint pain, osteopathic manipulative treatment can help improve your circulation and promote natural healing. Not only will you experience less aches and an increased range of motion, but you’ll also notice an overall improvement in your health. By encouraging your body’s natural healing methods, this treatment can improve how your body functions on a regular basis.


Dealing with migraines can be extremely difficult for individuals trying to carry out their daily tasks, as they experience excruciating and persistent pain. Those who suffer from migraines understand the significant effect these intense headaches have on their lives.

If you suffer from migraines, OMT can be a helpful solution. OMT can improve your overall mobility, reduce muscular tension, increase blood flow to and from your head and neck, and decrease inflammation.

In addition to treating your symptoms, our medical specialists can offer valuable advice on improving your posture and preventing future occurrences. They can also provide guidance on strengthening exercises, stretching, and ergonomic adjustments to your home or workplace.


Dr. Stemmerman can treat acute and chronic concussions. OMT for acute and chronic concussions can release tension in cranial bones, muscles, and fascia to foster the healing process. Restore harmony to the cranial unit, reduce inflammation and help improve the flow of brain fluid by easing stress on the nervous and immune system along with restoring autonomic fluid.


Dr. Stemmerman can manually apply a specific amount of pressure to different regions of the body to help restore muscle and tissue balance and promote overall movement of blood flow.

When appropriate, osteopathic manipulative treatment can complement, and even replace, medications. Patients of any age and almost any condition can receive and benefit from OMT. Contact our office to learn more about this treatment and see if it’s right for you.
