What Is OMT?

During the 1800s, Andrew Taylor Still, M.D., D.O., developed the practice of OMT as a supplement to medication and surgery. He based his techniques on the interconnectedness of body systems, the healing mechanisms innate in the human body, and how issues in the musculoskeletal system often affected other functions. He therefore began using his hands to correct imbalances in the patient’s musculoskeletal system. This practice proved to noninvasively relieve pain and areas of restriction, ensuring the patient’s body was set for optimal health. A.T. Still began to teach his techniques officially in 1892. Decades of research further confirmed that OMT helps correct problems with skeletal alignment, muscles, and joints, as well as related vascular, lymphatic, and neural issues.

Dr. Davis continues A.T. Still’s valuable work by offering these services:

  • Craniosacral

  • Muscle energy

  • High velocity / low amplitude

  • Counterstrain

  • Various other direct and indirect techniques

The type of OMT used depends on the patient’s age, history, current condition(s), and personal preferences. No two patients are exactly the same; therefore, Dr. Davis and the patient work together to determine which techniques would be the best.

 

Other services include:

  • Therapeutic ultrasound

  • Trigger-point injections

  • Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM)

His overall goal is to help the patient achieve optimal health.
