OMT Q & A

What is OMT?

OMT is a group of hands-on methods that osteopathic physicians like Dr. Greiss-Coult at Seasons of Life Obstetrics & Gynecology use to diagnose and treat illness or injury. OMT can also prevent a condition from progressing or even prevent illness or injury completely.

How does OMT work?

During OMT treatment, Dr. Greiss-Coult gently manipulates your joints and muscles in a variety of ways, including:

  • Myofascial release: gentle pressure in your connective tissues stops pain and restore range-of-motion
  • Muscle energy: controlled muscle contractions restore muscle and joint function
  • HVLA: short, quick movements in a specific area restore joint range-of-motion
  • Fascial unwinding: gentle connective tissue stretches and pressure trigger muscle relaxation
  • Strain and counterstrain: gentle muscle repositioning stops muscle spasms and joint constriction
  • Osteopathy in the cranial field: gentle osteopathic motions in the cranium (head) and tailbone

In addition to her OB/GYN training and experience, Dr. Greiss-Coult is highly skilled in the OMT field. This makes it extra convenient for you to get the whole-body care you need, all in one location at Seasons of Life Obstetrics & Gynecology.

What kind of illnesses and injuries can OMT help with?

Through OMT, Dr. Greiss-Coult can relieve pain, encourage faster healing, and improve your range-of-motion. OMT is an excellent solution for muscle pain and tension during pregnancy and even in the postnatal period.

When you're pregnant or are a new mom, you may have back pain, neck pain, headaches, and all-over-the-body pain. OMT is a great noninvasive solution that gives you the relief you need while avoiding pain medication. There’s no reason you have to be uncomfortable during your pregnancy with OMT!

OMT may also help with other conditions, even if you're not having a baby. For example, it can be an effective pain-relief solution for painful menstrual periods. Sometimes OMT can be a good option to try when you've got chronic pain but you're not ready to think about a surgical solution.
