Sometimes the best treatment a physician can recommend or provide is 100% natural and non-invasive. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) falls under that category. OMT can be used to ease pain, promote healing, and increase overall mobility.
An osteopathic physician moves a patient’s 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.
Patients suffering from the following conditions can experience significant improvements when receiving osteopathic treatment:
OMT is the most effective treatment in the reduction of pain and improvement of range of motion
Gentle massages to tight muscle groups and manipulation to loosen the joints of the neck, thorax, and back can relieve the build-up of muscular tension that may lead to headaches.
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.
