Osteopathic manual medicine, or OMM, is hands-on, non-invasive treatment.
It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury. Using OMM, a Des Moines University Clinic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. OMM is used to ease pain, promote healing and increase mobility. Just about anyone can benefit from osteopathic manual medicine. People of all ages and backgrounds have found relief from pain and dysfunction and improved mobility. Anyone from top athletes to workers with on-the-job injuries can benefit by seeing one of our physicians.
