Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment Q & A
What is osteopathic manipulative treatment?
Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is a holistic, integrative treatment option for a variety of painful and chronic conditions.
The goal of OMT is to realign your muscles and joints to correct structural imbalances in your body. Your provider at Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, can also use hands-on techniques to diagnose, treat, and even prevent illness or injuries.
What does osteopathic manipulative treatment involve?
Treatment with OMT focuses on your whole person, including your body, mind, and spirit. This therapy involves manual manipulations of your joints and muscles. These manipulations might include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance to boost your blood circulation and provide natural pain relief.
Manipulating your joints can relieve misalignments and restrictions and restore the balance in your muscles and tissues. If you have chronic pain because of nerve compression, OMT techniques can effectively release trapped nerves to provide long-term pain relief.
What conditions can osteopathic manipulative treatment address?
The providers at Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, might recommend osteopathic manipulative treatments to address chronic pain in the neck, back, or specific joints. OMT can also relieve symptoms of:
- Sinus disorders
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Osteopathic manipulative treatments can also help you get a better quality of sleep.
The providers have extensive experience in using OMT to relieve pain and improve the function of muscles, bones, and nerves. They customize a treatment plan based on your needs to keep you pain-free, so you can enjoy a high quality of life.
What are the benefits of osteopathic manipulative treatment?
Osteopathic manipulative treatments are often an effective complement to the treatments you’re receiving for painful conditions. In some cases, the use of OMT techniques can reduce your reliance on medications to relieve pain and may prolong the need for surgery.
Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, can also incorporate acupuncture, nutritional supplements, and more to improve your overall health and wellness.
Because OMT is a natural therapy, it’s an option for people of all ages. Treatment can boost your body’s healing abilities to address the underlying cause of muscle and joint pain. With less pain, you stay physically active and healthy.
