Osteopathic Manipulation Q & A

What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?

Osteopathic physicians receive special training focused on the body’s musculoskeletal system. They use osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illnesses and injuries.

During OMT, your osteopath at Health Atlast uses a set of hands-on techniques that may include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. Osteopathic manipulation stimulates your body’s natural healing process by correcting imbalances and realigning your musculoskeletal system. OMT provides relief from pain and symptoms without using drugs or invasive procedures.

What Can Osteopathic Manipulation Treat?

The team at Health Atlast uses OMT to treat a variety of conditions that cause pain and troublesome symptoms. Muscle pain is one of the most common reasons people seek OMT, but this treatment can help with many other health problems, including:

  • Asthma
  • Sinus disorders
  • Migraines and chronic headaches
  • Menstrual pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Joint pain and arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Herniated discs
  • Scoliosis
  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain


OMT can also help you recover faster after surgery with less pain and improved mobility.

What are the Benefits of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?

Pain relief without using habit-forming, narcotic medications is one of the greatest advantages of OMT. These techniques also offer the following benefits:

  • Relieve joint restriction
  • Correct misalignments
  • Restore muscle and tissue balance
  • Promote blood circulation throughout the body


The team at Health Atlast may recommend OMT on its own or in combination with other treatments, like trigger point injections.

Who is a Good Candidate for Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?

OMT may be right for you if you suffer from a condition that causes pain or symptoms that interfere with your everyday life. These healing techniques can restore you to a state of better health without the risks involved with medications and surgery.

The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for OMT is to schedule a consultation with one of the holistic medical providers at Health Atlast. They carefully evaluate your symptoms, review your medical history, and perform a physical exam before developing a personalized treatment plan.

With no risks involved, OMT is a safe and effective treatment for old and new problems. Call Health Atlast or book an appointment online to learn more about osteopathic manipulation today.
