Did you realize your obesity may be the cause of your foot and back pain?

Increased body weight and mass can cause poor posture and weakening of muscles leading to chronic painful conditions. The pain associated with obesity is usually improved with weight loss. However, this is a slow process. Our clinic offers a variety of methods for controlling and treating pain. These include osteopathic manipulation, acupuncture, and medications. The skillful combination of these treatments can prove highly effective in pain management.

Osteopathic Manipulation for painful conditions.

Osteopathic Manipulation is a gentle, hands on way of correcting the structure of the body. Osteopathic manipulation involves manually moving the joints, muscles and ligaments through their range of motion, in an effort to decrease pain and muscle tension and increase pain-free range of motion. By keeping all of the bones and tissues of the body loose and in optimal alignment, the body is able to function and heal at its best. By optimizing the structure and function of the body, the natural healing processes of the body are stimulated allowing the body to heal itself, often without the need for or use of medications. Our physicians are board certified in Neuromuscular Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and use a wide variety of techniques to improve your health and decrease your pain.
