OMPT stands for Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. OMPT Specialists is staffed exclusively by therapists who have completed the full postgraduate orthopedic manual physical therapy program from Oakland University ( an additional two years of training).  This additional training makes our practitioners uniquely qualified to deliver techniques reserved for more highly educated therapists with advanced knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and the musculoskeletal system.

OMPT is an advanced specialization in the understanding of complex orthopedic pathology. It entails innovative clinical training, emphasizing differential diagnosis and manual therapy procedures. Our highly specialized and unique training involves the most current evidence-based practice and evidence-based manual and exercise techniques. We are highly trained in translatoric spinal manipulation, functional massage and advanced orthopedic and therapeutic exercise concepts.

 

Treatment Philosophy

The treatment philosophy of an OMPT is a continuum of the evaluation process, dictating the treatment. We perform a treatment consistent with the impairment findings from the examination. The precise line of testing gives an impression about specific structures and characteristics of the structural deficits. The emphasis of the treatment is elimination of the symptoms, restoration of movement, and training an area that has a pathological dysfunction with expectations of restoring function.
