There are many types of therapies that can alleviate pain. Our providers work with you and will recommend the type of therapy that is specific to your needs. The following are just a few of the therapeutic options:
- We can discuss potential benefits of therapies such as formal physical therapy programs. We will match you to a therapist that gives you one-on-one attention and treatment. Research shows that one-on-one therapy provides the best outcomes. A therapist can be your guide to establishing a home exercise program that works well for you.
- Exercise can be a powerful tool in alleviating many types of pain conditions. Let us prescribe you an exercise program that is tailored to your specific needs and ability.
- Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. Dr. Baumgartner, a DO physician in our clinic, completed a fellowship in OMT; he commonly uses these techniques as part of a comprehensive plan to improve and eliminate painful conditions.
