Osteopathy Medicine & Manipulative Treatment
Osteopathic physicians, also known as DOs, work in partnership with their patients of all ages and backgrounds. They consider the impact that lifestyle and community have on the health of each individual, and they work to break down barriers to good health. Osteopathic medicine provides all of the benefits of modern medicine including prescription drugs, surgery, and the use of technology to diagnose disease and evaluate injury. Osteopathic manipulative treatment, or OMT, is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, your osteopathic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. In this way, OMT brings an important dimension to standard medical care."

Allergy Testing can be in the form of a blood test, a skin test, or an elimination diet. Skin testing is the most widely used and the most helpful in finding the cause of allergies. There are several different methods, but all involve exposing the skin to small amounts of various substances and observing the reactions over time.
Pelvic Floor Therapy
Pelvic floor physical therapy provides treatment for incontinence, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and other pelvic disorders. It uses hands-on physical therapy to stretch, strengthen and relax muscles in the lower pelvis. The physical therapist uses a massage-like technique, known as myofascial release, to help stretch and release the fascia (connective tissue between the skin and underlying muscle and bones) to help alleviate your pelvic discomfort or pain.
