Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine, or OMM, is a type of manual therapy used by osteopathic physicians that uses physical contact to heal the body and correct faulty function of the musculoskeletal system.
OMM incorporates various techniques applied to joints, their surrounding soft tissues, muscles and fascia (tissue that provides support and protection). Osteopathic manipulation is intended to be used in conjunction with conventional medical treatments where it is deemed appropriate.
Many common complaints such as low back pain, neck pain, headache, shoulder problems and knee problems may be helped with this treatment. It may also be helpful in patients with other medical problems affecting the gastrointestinal, cardiac, pulmonary, etc. systems as an adjunct to their existing medical treatment.

Noon Time OMT
CUSOM students would like to provide a service to the rest of the University! They have been training in osteopathic techniques for over a year and would like to make those treatments available to the rest of the Campbell community by offering a “Noon Time OMT Clinic”.
The students will be supervised by licensed physicians, but this “Noon Time OMT” is not to be considered a treatment by a physician. It is practice for the students and an opportunity for faculty and staff to get treated and hopefully get better. The students know almost two hundred techniques and will be able to address almost any musculoskeletal pain issue.
The clinic will be on Thursdays from 12:30 pm -1:00 pm beginning October 16, 2014 in the third floor OMM Lab at Leon Levine Hall.
