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.
