What is OMM?

Osteopathic manipulative medicine, or OMM, is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury. Using OMM, your osteopathic physician (D.O.) will treat your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.

How is OMM prescribed?

A physician’s decision to use OMM is made on a visit-by-visit basis depending on the condition of the patient at the time of each visit. This leads to a significantly lower number of visits than other health care providers who use manipulation.

What is the difference between OMM and other forms of manipulation?

OMM, used to diagnose and treat injuries and illnesses, uses a variety of methods designed to affect muscles, joints and soft tissues. These methods may include thrusting techniques, but also include gentler techniques to affect the body. OMM also optimizes blood circulation to maintain and restore health while other forms of manipulation tend to focus more on spinal misalignment interfering with nerve transmission.

How is OMM performed?

Your structural exam will begin with an assessment of your posture, spine and balance. Your physician will then use his/her hands to palpate your back and extremities. They will then check your joints for restriction and/or pain with various motions. Based on the exam findings and complexity or severity of your problem, a unique treatment strategy is developed for you.

Using a variety of techniques, your physician will apply OMM to your body’s affected areas to treat structural abnormalities. Depending on your problem and response to OMM, you may require more than one treatment. The end result is restoration of the body as a whole to maintain better overall health. A thorough knowledge of all systems of the body and comprehensive training give the osteopathic approach make it a safe and effective form of manipulative therapy.

Does managed care cover OMM?

OMM is an added treatment tool that is covered by many health insurances.

Does OMM Work?

OMM has a growing evidence base demonstrating its safety and efficacy for treating a variety of clinical conditions, including low back pain, pneumonia, asthma, post-surgical pain, and back pain in pregnancy. Patients who receive OMM are also more likely to use less pain medication, get better faster, and be more satisfied with their care.

Our Patients Are Saying…

Dr. Roop was outstanding. He was very conscientious and paid close attention, he knew my medical history, read all my charts. He was outstanding is all I can say. Thank you.

Dr. Mason is incredible. I believe the best doctor in the world. He listened, he understands and he’s able to treat with the knowledge and experience and we couldn’t be more thankful.

Dr. Nelson is a gem! So thankful to have found her!

The front office staff was fantastic. I came in with a crying baby and left with a crying baby and everyone was super understanding and very nice and even helped me carry her car seat and showed me to and from the nursing room, which is also great that you have. So I felt like this was a very family friendly practice and I actually look forward to going back.

Dr. Surve is an outstanding doctor. I feel very fortunate to have him taking care of me.
