Osteopathic Manual Treatment

Osteopathic Manual Treatment (OMT) is a precise manual therapy practice which employs gentle manipulations to treat the body.

Whether you are looking for help with recovery from an injury, chronic pain, the effects of stress, or simply maintaining good health, OMT provides a safe and effective extended medical therapy option.

Is OMT like Chiropractic?

 

An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (OMP) is instructed in the safe application of impulse adjustments which are similar to traditional Chiropractic adjustments.

This is only one of many treatment approaches a properly educated OMP is trained in, so it is used when it is required, when it is safe, and when consent is provided.

Is OMT like massage?

An OMP and RMT both address the soft connective tissue of the body but the OMP's approach is different than traditional massage therapy.

An OMP will use gentle sustained compression or distraction of to achieve changes in tissue length, or tone.

Is it safe to use OMT with other manual therapies?

Yes indeed it is. 

Chiropractic, Massage and Physiotherapy are all very complimentary with OMT.

OMT can be a great addition to your current wellness team.
