OMT Self-Care Techniques

Empowering Ourselves to Optimal Health through Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Osteopathic-therapist - DrGeorgeJ OMT

Balance, align and strengthen the Core (pelvis) for optimal musculoskeletal health

At the point of care, osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT) is a beneficial technique that has the potential to save costs while also improving pain and function in patients. There are several uses for manipulative treatment in primary care, all with a low risk of side effects, but it’s crucial to understand how OMT differs from other manual therapies.

OMT treatment focuses on treating directly with incorrect body physiology using a variety of direct and indirect procedures, rather than only spinal alignment. This individualized treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s specific needs, allowing the body’s self-healing and self-regulating systems to be facilitated at the point of care.
