Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy

Southwest Physical Therapy is part of Southwest Family Physicians where we combine different modalities to treat pain and disability arising from various causes. Dr. Brown’s area of specialty is osteopathic manual medicine and, in particular, correcting dysfunction within the so called ‘fascial distortion model’. This treatment includes not just manipulation, but also correction of muscles, tendons, and the fascia. This encompasses all areas of the body including, the neck and back, sacroiliac joints and hips, and the ribs, shoulders, knees, arms, legs, hands, and feet. All areas are subject to pain and dysfunction from fibromyalgia, arthritis, TMJ, and minor injury or overuse including sports injuries. The body wants all of its parts in the right place and when these areas are corrected as a unified whole, then pain and disability is improved or eliminated.
