Osteopathic manipulative treatment is a hands-on treatment performed by doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) as well as medical doctors (MDs) who have had additional specialized training. This hands-on treatment optimizes your body’s alignment and balance of muscles in order to facilitate the body’s ability to heal itself. Osteopathic manipulative treatment consists of several different types of techniques to manipulate muscles, soft tissues and joints.
You may be a candidate for osteopathic manipulative treatment if you struggle with:
To determine if you’re a candidate for osteopathic manipulative treatment, your A+ Athlete Sports Medicine specialist discusses your symptoms, medical history, and treatment preferences.
They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests, X-rays, an ultrasound, or another imaging procedure to diagnose possible injuries or other medical conditions.
During osteopathic manipulative treatment sessions, you will lie down or sit down on an exam table and your doctor will assess for any malalignment or dysfunction. Your provider will then use one or more OMT techniques to help correct that dysfunction. These techniques may involve sitting, lying on your back, lying on your side, etc. Techniques often involve putting light pressure or using gentle manipulation to stretch muscles and move joints into better alignment.
After you undergo osteopathic manipulative treatment at A+ Athlete Sports Medicine, you may feel better immediately, with additional improvements appearing over time as your body heals. You should drink plenty of water after a treatment. You may have some muscle soreness after a treatment but you should not experience a significant increase in your pain. Your specialist lets you know when to schedule your next session, which might be once a week or more often, to achieve optimal results.
