All Osteopathic Physicians are taught Osteopathic Manipulation during their training in Medical School. Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine is further training of Osteopathic Manipulation that includes additional techniques, and a broadened experience for treating many types of muscular and skeletal problems. Manipulation techniques used are very gentle. Patients are often able to reduce the amount of pain medications they need or no longer need pain medication. Problems commonly treated are (not limited to):
Yes, Dr. Chadfield uses a combination of patient education, stretching, manipulation, and core muscle strengthening that is very effective. She avoids pain medications because they do not treat the problem. She utilizes a very capable group of therapists, pain management specialists and surgeons if further treatment is required.
