Pain, whether acute or chronic, can affect a person’s physical and mental health significantly. Generally, painkillers are a go-to solution for chronic pain. However, osteopathy can also be used to get relief from pain. Euromed® Clinic is now offering a wide range of treatments for chronic pain management by using osteopathy. Our osteopaths address chronic pain issues with a special technique called Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT).

What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?
Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is a popular technique used in osteopathic medicine for chronic pain management. It includes a variety of techniques, including the following:
- High velocity or low amplitude thrust
- Muscle energy
- Direct myofascial release
- Visceral manipulation
The osteopaths move your muscles and joints by applying gentle pressure with their hands. They locate the hurting areas with their hands thus helping in the diagnosis. This technique is also referred to as healing touch. The basic aim of OMT is to improve blood circulation that naturally triggers the body’s healing ability.
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) can be used to treat a variety of chronic pain conditions. Some of the major types include;
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Sports injuries
- Headaches or migraines
- Menstrual cramps
- Spinal stenosis
- Hip and Pelvic pain
- Herniated disc
- Facial pain
