Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

How can OMM help me?

Osteopathic medicine focuses on treating the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

One of the treatment modalities of osteopathic medicine is osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMM, an osteopathic medical student will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.

Techniques include:

  • Soft tissue
  • Muscle energy
  • Strain/counterstrain
  • Myofascial release/facilitated positional release (MFR/FPR)
  • Ligamentous articular release (LAR)

OMM can help people of all ages with both new and long-standing medical issues to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility.
