(OMT) Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment



Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Sometimes the best treatment a physician can recommend or provide is 100% natural and non-invasive. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) falls under that category and can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility.

How OMT Treatment Works

An osteopathic physician moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. The targeted movements and pressure work in conjunction to release the restriction and tightness in nerves and muscles.

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

  • Asthma – When treating patients with asthma, this type of therapy can help maximize thoracic motion, thus helping to improve the respiratory function.
  • Sinus disorders –  OMT treatment is a complimentary treatment that includes working around the face, sinuses, neck, thoracic inlet and upper back to help with sinus drainage.
  • Back & neck pain – OMT is the most effective treatment in reduction of pain and improvement of range of motion
  • Migraines – Gentle massages to tight muscle groups and manipulation to loose the joints of the neck, thorax, and back can relieve the build-up of muscular tension that may lead to headaches.
  • Menstrual pain – 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 its right for you.
