The main emphasis of orthopedic manual physical therapy (OMPT) is joint mobilization and manipulation to improve joint range of motion and relieve pain. OMPT is an advanced form of physical therapy that focuses on using the hands to treat the cause of pain, not just its symptoms.
OMPT delivers quicker, more thorough results than traditional physical therapy. In fact, OMPT is the only certified therapy recognized by the American Medical Association. Research has shown that conditions not responding to traditional physical therapy often get better with OMPT treatment.
OMPT is targeted for the general orthopedic population and includes treatment of back pain and neck pain, post-surgical management, TMJ disorders, sports injuries, and more.
