Helping Your Body Heal Itself
Our neuromusculoskeletal medicine physicians use gentle movements with their hands to ease pain and help with healing for patients from infants to adults.
These experts in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) help your body recover more quickly from injury, treat muscle strain and speed recovery from illness. This non-invasive treatment can be used along with traditional medicine and, in some cases, reduce the need for painkillers.
Physicians at UM Health-West also are skilled in the use of osteopathic medicine to treat disorders such as asthma, sinus congestion, stress-related problems, TMJ and scoliosis, and feeding difficulties in babies.
Discuss with your primary care physician if treatment by a neuromusculoskeletal physician at the OMT Clinic can help. Your doctor or insurance provider can tell you if a referral is covered.
Our physicians are trained to understand how an injury can change the way the bones in your spine and joints move. They are experts at relieving joint restrictions, correcting vertebral misalignments and addressing muscle imbalance.
