Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine OMM
OMM is a form of hands-on treatment used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury. The goal of OMM is to improve motion and function in the body to address various musculoskeletal and medical disorders. OMM involves gentle stretching, pressure, and specific resistance movements. DOs are taught to treat the body as a functional unit; therefore, treatments are applied to the body as a whole as opposed to focusing solely on a primary area of complaint.
