Sports OMT

Our Program

The goals of providing manual medicine are to restore maximal pain-free movement of the musculoskeletal system, enhance neuromuscular function, and improve biomechanical balance.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) has been shown to reduce back pain, restore normal range of motion and balance, and decrease pain. Evidence also shows that manual medicine techniques can have an effect on various kinematic parameters of spinal functioning that could be beneficial to athletes’ wellness and performance.

 


What We DO

Our mission is to enhance the health, wellness and performance of the elite athlete.

 

Pre-Game Performance Enhancement

Utilizing OMT can have a direct effect on functional mobility patterns and athletic performance.

Post-Game Recovery

Osteopathic diagnosis can help find and target areas of altered mobility patterns. This allows for rapid assessment and treatment that will benefit the athlete in their recovery.

Care of the Injured Athlete

OMT can address athletic injuries involving soft tissue and muscles using myofascial release, muscle energy and counterstrain techniques. Joints and the surrounding tissues can be treated using articulatory, balanced ligamentous tension and high velocity-low amplitude techniques.
