  • Why OMT?

    Many times after an injury, the way the bones in your spine and joints move changes. You may experience muscle spasms and pain with normal activities. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) can help your body recover more quickly from injury by restoring normal motion to the joints and reducing spasms, thereby relieving pain. We usually recommend that you give your body a short period of time to rest after an injury before receiving OMT.

    OMT can be very effective in the treatment of muscle strain, such as a sore lower back, and ligamentous sprain, such as a sprained ankle. By relieving joint restrictions, correcting vertebral misalignments and addressing muscle imbalance, OMT can relieve pain, increase mobility and improve function. It can also relieve swelling and edema (the abnormal accumulation of watery fluid in connective tissue) and hasten healing and recovery from illness by promoting blood flow through the tissues.

    OMT isn’t an alternative to traditional medicine, but rather a complementary modality that can make traditional treatments work better.
