Osteopathy Manual Treatments
Osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) is holistic hands-on care performed by an osteopathic physician. Using the hands, the doctor diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent injury or illness. Often used to treat muscle pain, OMT can also be used to cure additional health problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, sinus disorders, migraines, menstrual pain and more.

Prolotherapy (Prolo) is a broad category that includes dextrose, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Stem Cell injections. It is a nonsurgical treatment which stimulates healing. Short for "proliferation therapy," Prolotherapy is also known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction, or regenerative injection therapy. It works by stimulating the body's own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissue and painful joint areas. We use diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging to detect and direct injections to the correct injury site. Learn more

It is now being used to treat head injuries, chronic migraines, to boost results in combination with Prolotherapy and more. Learn more
