Osteopathic Medicine is the treatment of the patient as a whole.
If one area of your body is injured or stressed, other body systems adapt and compensate, leading to pain, inflammation, and other disorders. Once the core problem is resolved, compensating areas return to healthy function.
Musculoskeletal treatments restore muscular balance and joint mobility. Treatment targets the source of the injury, reduces recovery time, and improves strength.
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) uses hands-on care to ease pain, promote healing, and increase mobility. Your physician uses a series of gentle movements to alleviate restrictions of normal motion, restore function, and improve communication between muscles, bones, and nerves. We have help Prolotherapy injections are used to stabilize injured or weak tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and joints, by stimulating the healing process.
