What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT)?

There are a variety of OMT techniques. With these techniques, manual force is applied to the problem area(s) of the body in order to treat structural abnormalities. The physician then applies specific corrective forces to relief joint restrictions and misalignment's. Appropriate referrals may be needed for low back pain and neck pain.

Biofeedback

During a biofeedback session, a monitor is attached to the patient's index finger which sends signals to a computer and displays images that represent the patient’s heart and breathing rate.

Patients are then coached through relaxation exercises while watching the computer screen and they can see first-hand how their heart rate goes down as they are more relaxed.

Sarka Evans, PhD, and Judy Feld, LCSW, use biofeedback to treat anxiety, panic disorders and chronic pain. Biofeedback works similar to Lamaze in that the patient is given something else to focus on besides their pain.
