What is Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine?

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine or Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is a hands-on therapy used by a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) that clinically has shown to bring relief from pain and many conditions. Using many physical techniques such as applying targeted gentle pressure, resistance and stretching to different areas of the body, this modality works to address joint restrictions, musculoskeletal misalignments, tissue abnormalities, muscle balance and promotes improved circulation throughout the body. Osteopathic Physicians receive extensive special training and use highly skilled touch and should not be confused with chiropractics.


Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine has proven to be an effective complement to medication to manage chronic pain as well as an alternative to pharmaceuticals for pain management in appropriate cases. In addition to treating muscle pain, this technique also promotes healing and improves mobility. Some examples of what Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine can help improve are:


  • Lower Back Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel 
  • Migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Joint Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Sports Injuries
  • Tendonitis (tennis elbow, trigger finger)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Asthma
  • Sinus Infections
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Sleep


Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine can help to bring acute relief from pain but in evaluating and addressing more than just the symptoms you are experiencing - they take a holistic approach to discover and treat the underlying issues that have caused or exacerbated your condition to promote long term relief and healing. This holistic approach considers:


  • Diet & Nutrition
  • Lifestyle & Habits
  • Environment
  • Physical Health
  • Mental Health
  • Stress Levels
  • Sleep Hygiene
