Osteopathic manipulative treatment, or OMT, is hands-on care. This involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. With the use of OMT, Dr. Beaman will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
Is OMT Right for me? OMT can help people of all ages. This treatment can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain. But it can also help patients with a number of other health problems such as:
- Sinus Disorders
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Menstrual Pain
When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. In this way, OMT brings an important dimension to standard medical care.
