Helping Hands Osteopathic: Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

What Is OMT ?

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), is a specialized form of medicine practiced by DO’s that utilizes hands-on care. Practitioners use their hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. While practicing OMT, Dr. Bailey will bring your body into alignment by using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure, resistance and balance. This alignment extends beyond the spine and upper extremities to all areas of the body, including but not limited to the head, skin, and muscles.
