In the tradition of osteopathic medicine, Dr. Heim approaches your medical care from a holistic approach. This includes evaluating musculoskeletal imbalances which can cause symptoms such as neck pain, back pain and headaches from chronic muscle tension. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is a form of manual medicine that uses various hands-on techniques which work to align the spine and the entire musculoskeletal system. Dr. Heim uses a number of techniques to accomplish musculoskeletal balance, including gentle manipulation of muscle and soft tissue and high velocity techniques which are similar to what most people undergo in chiropractic treatment.
OMT is used for acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. It can also help optimize body function by restoring proper circulation and nerve conduction, both of which can be compromised by subtle misalignment of the spine and joints, and the subsequent muscular and soft tissue tension this misalignment can cause. Structure and function of the body are inter-related, and correcting structural imbalance can improve overall body function and allow the body to heal itself. By utilizing holistic treatments such as OMT and nutritional supplements, Dr. Heim can help your body reduce disease and optimize your health.
