Dr. Ari Rosen, DO and Dr. Joseph Tieri, DO specialize in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), with a focus on Cranial and Biodynamic Osteopathy. Doctors of Osteopathy (DOs) are trained similarly to Allopathic Doctors (MDs), but are taught to view the body more holistically and integrate manipulation into their healing practice before prescribing drugs or suggesting surgery. Osteopathic treatment is a gentle manipulation that works to balance the body’s physiology, relieve restricted and compressed areas, integrating all the systems of the body, to allow for healing. Infants, children, and adults, with various conditions, are treated with OMM. Osteopathy is also truly preventative. Many patients opt for regular appointments to help maintain their health and to optimize how their bodies function. While there are many conditions which OMM can help, a few examples are:
- concussion and traumatic brain injury
- headaches and migraines
- back and neck pain
- nerve pain / neuropathy
- birth trauma
- difficulty nursing / latching
- recurrent ear infections
- cranial symptoms from dental trauma
- mild anxiety and stress
- concentration and learning difficulties
