Our office staff and physicians are a group of caring people who are committed to carrying on the long-standing tradition of helping people improve their health and overcome problems by means of diagnosis and treatment with osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM). We are proud to say that we are an osteopathic family, with years of working together to provide care for our patients.
The osteopathic manipulative medicine approach began in 1874 and has continued to develop since that time. Certain principles have remained consistent, which include:
Our providers use all types of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). These range from gentle articulation and soft tissue techniques, to myofascial release techniques, from release by position techniques such as counterstrain, to balancing techniques, such as balanced ligamentous tension and ligamentous articular strain. Very gentle techniques, such as osteopathic manipulation in the cranial field can used, as well as more direct techniques, such as high-velocity low-amplitude techniques. There are other types of OMT as well.
Our mission is to enhance the health and promote the recovery from illness for patients at Roxborough Hospital by providing care from an osteopathic manipulative medicine perspective and approach. The Roxborough OMM consultation service is available five days a week, Monday through Friday.
Our scope of care includes all ages and all severity of illness—from infants and pediatrics to adults and geriatric patients; including those with mild, moderate and severe levels of illness; even patients in critical care settings. We address patients with a wide range of medical and surgical illnesses as well as specific neuromusculoskeletal problems.Learn More
