Osteopathic Manual Therapy

What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Osteopathic manual therapy is a “hands-on”, drug-free, non-invasive form of manual therapy that focuses on the health of the whole body, not just the injured of affected part. Osteopathic Manual therapy treatment is a way of moving muscles and joints using various stretching, pressure and resistance techniques.By restoring proper mechanics to an area the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner allows normal flow of fluids and improves function which will help to reduce pain and restore normal activity for that patient.
