What is Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine?

  • Neuromusculoskeletal medicine is a subspeciality of Osteopathic Medicine that focuses on the interaction of the nerves, muscles, and bones and how they can contribute to problems within the body and it’s inherent regulatory mechanisms.
  • We use Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine to assess for any asymmetry or inequalities that exist within a given individual, and work with the patient to correct them.
  • This can involve gentle, indirect techniques such as Myofascial Release or Counterstrain, or more aggressive techniques such as Muscle energy and High Velocity Low Amplitude (HVLA) techniques.
  • At each visit, you will meet with a physician who will determine the correct treatment course and level of treatment needed. Treatment can then be performed at the same visit if indicated.
  • Sometime, additional testing such as blood work or x-rays may be needed before such treatments can begin.
