Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy – A Whole-Body Approach to Wellness in Monroe Township, NJ
Osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT) is a therapeutic treatment that involves the controlled application of manual pressure to targeted areas of the body. OMT is designed to help a patient achieve and maintain his or her overall health by stimulating the body’s natural repair processes and restoring normal body function. The doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey have integrated the principles of osteopathic medicine into their practice with a goal to provide comprehensive health care services to residents of Monroe Township, NJ.
Based on an advanced understanding of the interrelationships between the body’s structures and functions, and how the body can be influenced by (as well as influence) emotional wellness, our DOs can use palpation and manipulation to provide individualized care to promote good health. Additionally, the DOs at Advanced Health and Wellness Center of New Jersey in Monroe Township, NJ, use osteopathic manipulative therapy to address a variety of specific musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, including:
- Neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Sports-related injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Some types of headaches
Taking a patient-centered approach to health care, we consider multiple aspects of a patient’s lifestyle when recommending a treatment plan that includes osteopathic manipulative therapy. Because a body’s structure influences its function, we aim to identify areas of the body where its structure can be altered through manipulation in order to improve function in that specific area, which in turn can have a positive effect on the entire body. In some cases, OMT can be used to complement – and possibly even replace – medications or surgery.
