Osteopathic Manual Medicine

Helps Restore Normal Bio-mechanical Functioning
Osteopathic manual medicine (or Osteopathic Manual Therapy OMT) is a hands-on method of treating injuries and pain of the spine and extremities using manual manipulation. OMT properly applied improves and or restores nomal function and range of motion of the spine and extremities. A range of techniques are employed that are suitable for all age groups and levels of infirmity.


Treats Pain and Inflammation
Acupuncture is well known in its ability to stop pain, what is not well known is its utility in reducing inflammation and speeding recovery. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have minimal risks or side effect and are thus safer and should therefore be used first before resorting to chemical medicine or surgery.

Exercise Prescription

Strengthens and Maintains Your Progress
Dr Opare makes and teaches individualized therapeutic exercises prescriptions to nearly all of his patients with orthopedic conditions. Osteopathic exercise prescriptions are individualized, specific movements that are taught to patients to be done at home. They are used in combination with hands on treatments such osteopathic manipulation and massage to treat pain or injuries and prevent future problems by restoring neuromuscular balance.

These quick and easy self-mobilization techniques when done regularly at home increase the effectiveness of the in-office treatments, speed recovery, and provides patients with a powerful tool to maintain proper functioning on their own.
