Manipulation Treatment in Knoxville

A safe, effective, and minimally invasive method of assisting the body to heal injured tendons and ligaments

What is Osteopathic Manipulation?

Facilitate your natural healing with the Osteopathic Center’s precise touch!

The world of medical science unveils new discoveries quite frequently, and much of the focus of media attention is upon the latest bells and whistles. Amid all the new promises, it’s easy to forget about the healing touch that patients really need for recovery. The Osteopathic Center hasn’t forgotten this concept. The idea that your body can heal itself is nothing new. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) incorporates natural pain relief into traditional medical care for a complete patient-centered approach to healing and empowers each patient to access their most optimal health.

Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine was created by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO, in the late 1800s, and it has successfully developed into its own unique treatment method for any medical condition. Osteopathic manipulation can help people of all ages and backgrounds with its hands-on approach.
