Your care plan could include osteopathic manipulation, also known as OMT or OMM, which is a system of hands-on techniques that an osteopathic physician, or DO, can use to diagnose, treat or prevent illness or injury. It encompasses a wide variety of manual manipulation styles, and the treatment is tailored to the individual patient. Part of an osteopathic physician’s training is a detailed study of anatomy to understand how muscles, joints, nerves and other tissues of the body move and interrelate. Patients seek osteopathic evaluation for a broad range of both musculoskeletal and systemic issues.
