Osteopathic Manual Therapy
Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) is a holistic hands-on treatment philosophy that focuses on harmonizing the whole person, body, mind, and spirit. Thanks to intensive studies that help ingrain advanced assessment skills as well as a wide variety of treatment techniques, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners have extensive knowledge and understanding of the human body’s anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and biomechanics. This gives practitioners the ability to personalize any client’s treatment plan.
With the goal of restoring proper function, every part of the body can benefit from OMT. An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner applies very gentle but powerful techniques to realign the body and stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The Osteopathic Manual Practitioner’s assessment looks beyond symptoms and pinpoints the source of the problem. The results of Osteopathic Manual Therapy are often swift and long-lasting.
Athletic Therapy is a healthcare profession that focuses on the treatment and prevention of athletic and work-related injuries. An Athletic Therapist’s goal is to provide an active treatment program for clients. After a detailed assessment, the Athletic Therapist will directly treat the client’s injuries and assist the client through a rehabilitation process that has been specifically designed for optimal recovery.
The Athletic Therapist will attentively educate clients on their specific injuries and stages of healing throughout the rehabilitation process. This shortens recovery time and reduces the risk of re-injury while leaving the client informed and confident after each session.
Kinesiology taping is used by many practitioners to improve sports performance and postural dysfunction or to support injured tissue. Kinesiology taping helps to reduce pain and improves circulation by lifting and distributing stress away from the affected area.
