Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine (OMM) - SBH Health System

Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine (OMM)

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is a hands-on system of diagnosis and treatment designed to improve health and resolve symptoms by aligning the structures of the body and improving mobility.  Improving the body’s nervous and circulatory systems enhances the body’s ability to maintain its own health.

Osteopathic physicians at SBH view the musculoskeletal system as a mirror of disease and disorder occurring in other parts of the body. Their hands have been schooled in methods of treatment not included in other forms of medical training.
OMT is often combined with traditional treatments. It can help your body recover more quickly from injury, is an effective treatment for muscle strain and can speed up your recovery from illness.

OMT is used to treat normal aches and pains, as well as such disorders as asthma, sinus congestion, stress and tension-related problems, TMJ, scoliosis, arthritis, digestive disorders, bladder and menstrual problems, and chronic pain and illness. Strain/sprains, sciatica, back pain, tendinitis, headache, behavioral problems, colic in infants, dental problems, and symptoms related to fibromyalgia are all appropriate for an OMT consultation.
