Osteopaths DO(MP) treat the root cause of the dysfunction, not the symptom. Assessing the underlying factors causing the problem and treating the physical health of the patient.
A Manual Osteopathic Practitioner (MOT) assesses and treats disorders of the body’s systems: muscular, skeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, nervous, or reproductive.
Treatments not only involve the spine and joints but also include interconnective tissues, scar tissue, fascia, and fluids as well. Various techniques are used on joints or organs, and gentle movement to correct biomechanical dysfunctions. The treatment is manual, hands-on, gentle, and non-invasive.
