OMM is an approach to treating multiple types of musculoskeletal issues that entails stretching, gentle pressure, soft tissue manipulation, and more. It can help people of all ages, from children to seniors. Although Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine is renowned for effective muscle pain treatment, it can also boost your recovery time after surgery. At Boulder Prolotherapy, our skillful osteopathic physicians use hands-on techniques to diagnose, treat, and prevent ailments and injuries. We practice several methods to help patients heal from illnesses that inflict pain and limit mobility: musculoskeletal realignment, muscular energy technique, and strain-counterstrain technique.

Musculoskeletal Realignment: Treatment for Your Nagging Pain

A crick in your neck or back, frequent headaches, or joint pain can make you feel older. If you a looking for an appropriate treatment to soothe your pain, musculoskeletal realignment therapy is the perfect option. Osteopathic treatment aims to correct bad posture or alignment that causes you suffering and discomfort.

Most back problems stem from living a sedentary lifestyle. However, a majority of people opt to take pills for their pain, instead of obtaining a proper diagnosis or treatment from a medical professional. Our clinic specializes in musculoskeletal realignment to help ease your back pain, rid your muscles of knots, and improve your posture. We create a personal treatment plan to meet your specific needs and help you live a pain-free life.

Muscle Energy Technique in Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment

Muscle Energy Technique (MET) can be added to the treatment plan of people experiencing lower back pain, limited range of motion, somatic dysfunction, or headaches. This type of osteopathic manipulation treatment is an active technique involving the patient's participation, and it can be applied to most areas of your body.

During a MET session, the patient contracts muscles against a controlled counter-force administered by a physician to loosen and stretch them. If your rigid muscles cause you significant discomfort, ask the professional osteopathic physicians at Boulder Prolotherapy for help. We use Muscle Energy Technique to provide a structural diagnosis, eliminate your discomfort, and restore your joint motion.

Strain-Counterstrain Technique

Strain-Counterstrain Technique is a gentle manipulation of soft tissue to treat pain and release the muscle and spasm. It can be applied to any area of the body. Strain-Counterstrain Technique aims to put the patient with a spasm in a comfortable position for 60-90 seconds to relax the tissue and repeat the process until the spasm is gone. Using this method, our trained osteopathic doctors give you the immediate pain relief you need by reducing muscle tension.
