Daniel J. Ragone, Jr., M.D., PA
Osteopathic Manipulative therapy (O.M.T.)
Practitioners uses manual medicine to diagnose and treat "somatic dysfunction" by manipulating the bones and muscles of a patient to restore the body's maximal function, reduce pain and assist in increasing wellness and injury recovery.
Common forms of manipulation used today that a patient may encounter include:
1. Strain - Counterstrain
1. High velocity-low amplitude (HVLA) (the classic "thrust" technique)
1. Muscle energy
Dr. Ragone is trained by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to perform O.M.T.
