Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine(OMM/OMT)

OMT is Hands On Treatment

Dr. KolinskiAfter Dr. Kolinski meets the patient and listens to their pain problems, he will do a physical examination and assessment of the  patient’s posture, spinal motion and balance. He will then move on to palpate the bones, muscles and joints of the back and extremities of the body. Dr. Kolinski will check major joints for restriction and/or dysfunction during motion.

Pain is often caused by these restrictions. After the assessment, Dr. Kolinski will determine what OMT techniques might treat and correct structural abnormalities that he has diagnosed. The goal of OMT is to normalize and optimize musculoskeletal function which allows the proper functioning of the nervous system and reduces pain.

OMT can be used to treat a multitude of illness and ailments, such as; headaches, neck pain, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many other types of injuries. Used alone or in combination with traditional pain management services, the patient may feel relief from chronic pain for longer periods.
