OMPT 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.

The OMPT Certification

The OMPT Certification is a post graduate certification in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. The certification is provided by Oakland University to physical therapists who want to advance their knowledge and skill in manual therapy. It requires a physical therapist to study for 2 more years above and beyond the regular therapy degrees (PT, MPT, DPT) and gives them an additional 200 extensive clinical hours. Individuals must pass numerous exams and clinical training to be called OMPT Certified.
