"To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease."
-Philosophy of Osteopathy by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is a method of hands on treatment taught to physicians trained in Osteopathic Medical Schools. OMM can be useful in relieving pain, improving structural alignment, and promoting the body's natural ability to heal.
