Are you looking for a sports medicine doctor Sterling Heights MI?
Dr. Shane Patterson is a board certified internal medicine physician who practices medicine in keeping with the osteopathic philosophy. Osteopathic physicians have been trained to diagnose and treat patients as a whole being, rather than a collection of symptoms. Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy used to diagnose and treat dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system, including the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together. When any of these structures are out of alignment, compensation for joint instability or musculoskeletal imbalance can lead to decreased performance and further injury.
Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy has been shown to be effective in maintaining flexibility, improving strength, for treating repetitive use injuries like bursitis, tendonitis, and Iliotibial band friction syndrome that affects runners, cyclists, weight lifters, skiers, soccer players, tennis players, football players, athletes engaged in circuit training, and active adults. At Osteopathic Health Care Associates, we specialize in drug-free pain management, and use the latest research and cutting edge techniques to help increase your strength, extend your range-of-motion, and optimize your body’s natural healing ability. Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy is safe for athletes of all ages, and has been shown to reduce the reliance on surgery and drugs.
