The practice of ONMM directs special attention to the structural aspects of body motion and function, and their role in disease management. It involves enhanced knowledge of osteopathic principles, which treat medical disorders by restoring the body’s natural ability to move through a variety of gentle techniques applied to soft tissues, muscles, joints and their related structures. These are integrated into the care of patients of all ages, especially connected to primary care, neurology, rheumatology, gynecology, sports medicine, orthopedics and rehabilitation.
