Repost from from Ontario Association of Osteopathic Manual Practitioners. osteopathyontario.org
Osteopathic manual practitioners (OMPs) work to maintain, improve and restore the normal physiological function of body structures and systems, which enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Osteopathic manual care can help manage chronic or acute pain of the pelvis, low back, knee, shoulders, jaw and neck. OMPs can support your recovery post-injury or post-surgery. Osteopathic manual care can reduce tension that may contribute to complaints like respiratory difficulties, headaches, digestive irregularities and sinus pain. Our goal is to help you return to health and normal activities.
