Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
At our practice, Dr. Parikh and Dr. Rajput have both received special training in the musculoskeletal system, the body’s intricate system of muscles, nerves and bones. This advanced training provides them with a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others.
When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. In this way, DOs bring an important dimension to standard medical care. Along with pain due to musculoskeletal issues, our doctors use OMT to help with things like:
