Our Approach: We help people in pain be pain free
Allowing the body’s intrinsic tendency for self-healing without medicine
The perception of pain is not merely a response to physical injury, but is also related to the patient’s own emotional framework as well as their physical and social environments. An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner works to build a trusting relationship with their patient to help understand if there are other non-physical factors that could be contributing to their chronic pain condition. This allows the practitioner to develop a more comprehensive pain management and reduction plan to help their patient find relief.
What is involved in an Osteopathic Treatment Session
You will find that a visit to an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will include osteopathic manipulative treatments (OMT), the hands-on procedures a practitioner will use to manipulate muscles, joints, and other tissues. In addition, you’ll probably also be asked questions pertaining to topics such as your eating habits and diet, sleep habits, exercise routines, work culture, and your family life. This more holistic approach is designed to help discover issues that could be impeding your recovery.
Developing a comprehensive pain management and reduction plan
When there are non-physical issues that could be contributing to chronic pain, your Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will suggest alternate forms of treatment working with other healthcare professionals to come up with appropriate treatment strategies. Read about what to expect on your first visit.
