Osteopathic Medicine

“It is the object of a physician to find health, anyone can find disease.”
-Andrew Taylor Still M.D., D.O. (Founder of Osteopathy)

Osteopathic Manipulative Treament (OMT) is the therapeutic application of manually guided forces to improve physiologic function and/or support homeostasis. OMT is applied to regions of diagnosed somatic dysfunction to restore the body to homeostasis.

 

Somatic dysfunction: Impaired or altered function of related components of the somatic system including skeletal, arthrodial (joint), and myofascial structures, and related vascular, lymphatic, and neurologic elements. -Glossary of Osteopathic Terminology
