What is Osteopathic Manipulation?

An osteopathic manipulation is a form of treatment where a trained doctor uses different techniques to move and manipulate muscles and joints to help alleviate tension and pain. To properly perform this treatment, a doctor must be specially trained in the musculoskeletal system. This system is the complex relationship between nerves, muscles, and bones. Treatment can be used to help prevent surgery (potentially) or compliment the use of medications. An osteopathic manipulation is a great option for anyone experiencing muscle aches or pains.
