Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment in Detroit and Southeastern Michigan
DMC Medical Group provides osteopathic manipulative treatment in Detroit and southeastern Michigan. Also called OMT, this is a set of hands-on techniques that are used to diagnose, treat, and prevent musculoskeletal disorders and injuries, along with other types of conditions. When deemed an appropriate treatment option, OMT can be used to complement or even replace the need for medication or surgery.
Our sports medicine and orthopedic specialists use OMT to treat mechanical pain by manually applying varying amounts of pressure to different regions of the body. The patient’s muscles and joints are moved through stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance. This treatment is appropriate for patients of all ages and backgrounds, and can be used to ease pain, promote healing, and increase overall mobility. These techniques can help with:
- Joint restriction and misalignment
- Muscle and tissue imbalances
- Structural and tissue abnormalities
- Overall movement of blood flow throughout the body
One of the most common uses of OMT is to treat lower back pain, but it can be used to treat many other conditions. Pregnant women who are having trouble sleeping or experiencing pain may benefit from OMT, and it is sometimes even used to help infants who have colic. While OMT is primarily used to treat pain caused by muscle, tendon, or bone issues, it can also be used to treat other health conditions such as:
- Carpal tunnel
- Menstrual pain
- Sinus disorders
