Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy - OMPT
A Hands-On Approach to Physical Therapy in Clinton Township, Michigan
Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy, or OMPT, is the highly-specialized area of physical therapy that we practice at Physical Therapy & More in Clinton Township, Michigan. Unlike traditional physical therapy that relies soley on passive techniques like heat, exercises and ultrasound, OMPT utilizes the application of hands-on manipulation to restore pain-free living and proper function. Based on techniques originated in Europe, and recognized by the American Medical Association, OMPT is proven to more effectively stimulate the neuro-musculoskeletal system, and promote greater joint motion and soft tissue function than conventional approaches to physical therapy.

Conventional physical therapy is often concerned only with relieving the symptoms of a condition. By exclusively treating the symptoms, or a specific area of pain, the true cause of the condition may be overlooked or not treated effectively. OMPT succeeds where other treatments have failed because it is dedicated to treating problems at their source, enabling us to resolve conditions even where prior physical treatments has been ineffective.
