Frequently Asked Questions
What can Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) help with?
My patients tell me that OMM can help with low back pain, headaches, neck pain, rib pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, leg pain, plantar fasciitis, sprains/strains, sports injuries, spasms, degenerative diseases, concussion, pregnancy among others. I have seen it also help after accidents, injuries, falls and traumas – but the first stop for those conditions is the Emergency room, the urgent care or your primary care doctor to ensure that you don’t have bleeding, fractures, or other acute conditions that need to be addressed immediately.
What is a treatment reaction?
Sometimes after a Osteopathic Treatment patients will experience a few days of musculoskeletal soreness – taking it easy and staying hydrated are important following an Osteopathic Treatment.
