Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy {OMT} Milwaukee

What Is Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy?

Osteopathic Manipulative TherapyOsteopathic manipulative therapy, usually shortened to OMT, is a system of hands-on techniques used to alleviate pain and correct structural changes in the body. Osteopathic doctors like Dr. Neal Pollack of Neurology & Pain Treatment Center use their hands to apply pressure on and around areas in pain or discomfort.

OMT is most often used to relieve muscle and joint pain. This technique also helps improve blood flow, open energy pathways, and regulate nervous system function for overall better health. This therapy acts an alternative to taking pain killers or requiring surgery.

How Does Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy Work?

The basis of all osteopathic medicine is the belief all parts of the body are interconnected. A problem with one part of the body may indicate disease or injury elsewhere. Dr. Neal Pollack, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, uses this knowledge to improve the health of the whole body, rather than just addressing one small area.

Disease, injury, and the natural aging process can all lead to changes in the musculoskeletal system. Improper body structure leads to abnormal function, leading to pain and discomfort.

OMT is commonly used to treat pain in the following areas:

  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back Pain
  • Hip pain

Even if you do not suffer from chronic pain in these areas, OMT may help other problems throughout the body, depending on diagnosis.

Diagnosis for OMT Treatment

Before you start osteopathic manipulative therapy, the first step to pain relief is diagnosing the true source of your pain. A personal consultation with Dr. Pollack will lead to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

For some patients, OMT may not be recommended. Fortunately, the Neurology & Pain Treatment Center offers many types of treatment including prolotherapy, Botox injections, and spinal decompression to help our patients put an end to their chronic pain.
