What is Osteopathic Medicine?
What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?
Osteopathic medicine is a distinct branch of medical practice in the United States. The osteopathic philosophy of medicine sees an interrelated unity in all systems of the body, with each working with the other to heal in times of illness.
Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice in every medical specialty. DOs practice a whole-person approach to medicine, focused on looking beyond your symptoms to understand how lifestyle and environmental factors impact your wellbeing.
The profession is one of the fastest growing segments in health care today, with one out of every four medical students enrolled in an osteopathic medical school.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of techniques used by Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine to diagnose, treat and prevent illness and injury.
Using OMT, a DO moves a patient's muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
OMT can help patients of all ages. Although it is often used to treat muscle and joint pain, it can also help provide relief for asthma, sinus disorders, migraines, TMJ and carpal tunnel syndrome.
In many cases, the treatment can be used to complement, or even replace, drugs or surgery.
Central Maine Osteopathic Manual Medicine's mission is to provide personalized, high-quality care on an as-needed or preventative basis.
