OMPT is also referred to as Manual or Manipulative Therapy and is a type of physical treatment that’s mainly used on the neuromusculoskeletal system for treating pain and disability.
OMPT Specialists are trained not just to focus on the exercise, but also promote a wide range of motion along with better joint and ligament mobility.
Traditional Physical Therapy simply looks at the symptoms but advanced physical therapy techniques and structural diagnosis can highlight the source of the pain. For many rehab programs the focus is on exercise but OMPT Specialists also identify biomechanical deficiencies before treating them.
OMPT is the only certified therapy by the American Medical Association with research showing that conditions that don’t respond to traditional physical therapy see considerable results with OMPT treatment.
What makes OMPT different to conventional physical therapy is that it focuses on treating the cause of the pain, not merely the symptoms. This means the results are delivered more quickly than through traditional physical therapy.
