Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (Primary Care)
Body Area: Arms / Hands
Body Parts: Palm
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. By utilizing techniques such as stretching, gentle pressure and resistance, osteopathic physicians will move your muscles and joints to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help patients with other health problems such as asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, and menstrual pain. OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery under appropriate circumstances.
