What is Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine?
Manipulation focuses on the health of the patient. With this in mind, the goal is to improve blood flow, nerve conduction and biomechanical function. Your osteopathic physician will accomplish this by working with the various tissues of your body to allow them to function more optimally. There are a wide variety of techniques that are used for manipulation.
Some techniques are very gentle, while others are more aggressive. Your physician will determine the best approach to treating you based on what will be most efficacious and within your range of tolerance. At no point should you be in any more discomfort than you typically feel during your daily activities.
