How Does Osteopathic Manipulation Medicine Work?

OMM is often used as an alternative to traditional medicine, but it can also be done in combination with other treatments or therapies. Prior to your OMM session, you will have a consultation with one of the experienced physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center. A personalized treatment plan will be created to provide relief for uncomfortable symptoms and help improve your overall health. Once you are positioned on the treatment table, your physician will gently apply firm pressure to specific areas of the body, which should not be painful. This helps to release tension in the muscles, joints, and nerves. Following your treatment, be sure to stay hydrated and avoid any strenuous activity for the next day or so.
