What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is a special form of manual treatment used to diagnose various illnesses and help patients recover from physical problems and injuries. Osteopathic physicians use their hands to strengthen your muscle and joints and relieve stress buildup in your body.
Osteopathic manipulation techniques involve rubbing, stretching, massaging, and applying suitable pressure to various sensitive areas of the body.
What are the medical conditions that OMT is used for?
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatments are used for many kinds of medical conditions and diseases besides relieving muscle and joint pains.
Below is a list of some of the major medical problems that OMT has proven to be very effective in helping:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Menstrual cramps
- Muscle ruptures
- Sinus problems
Major manipulation techniques used by osteopathic physicians
The soft tissues in the body can be manipulated by applying a certain amount of pressure. By massaging and stretching these tissues, osteopathic physicians can improve blood flow and speed up their healing process. The process is not painful at all, and can bring immediate relief to the patient if done correctly.
Constantly making muscles to move in a certain direction and countering them with opposing external pressures can unlock the latent energy within them. This reduces the stress in your muscles and has an overall positive effect on your body.
This technique involves the use of gentle force to dissipate stress in the connective tissues that are found around muscles, organs, and bones. Fascia is the medical term used for these tissues.
Osteopathic physicians use this technique to apply pressure to various parts of the skull in order to enhance healing and make the patient feel relaxed.
Who needs Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment can be used for children as well as adults. It is an extremely effective way to reduce pain in various parts of the body and increase the mobility of a person. A person of any age can receive OMT to deal with any kind of physical problem or medical condition.
OMT can also be used to heal areas of the human body that have suffered damage. This form of manual treatment has been gaining popularity rapidly since it has no adverse side effects and produces very good results.
