Osteopathic Manipulative Treatments
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, Dr. Vander Pol will move your head (cranium), muscles, and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. OMT addresses the muscles, bones, lymphatic system, circulatory system, nervous system, viscera, and cranium. The focus in treatment therefore, goes beyond simple spinal alignment, to addressing all of the layers of your body that influence your health, or cause disease.
