In our clinic, Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) consists of two manipulative techniques aimed at readjusting skeletal alignment. This means realigning the vertebral spine and pelvis—as well as adjusting other joints of the extremities.
These two techniques include:
- Osteopathic manipulation—which is a gentle, direct, slow, (low-velocity), manual readjusting technique—and
- Muscle energy technique—which is a gentle, indirect technique that uses the patient’s own muscle strength in realigning joints.
