Naturopathic manipulative treatment (NMT) is a physical medicine treatment that Dr. Brody like to use from time to time. This form of medicine uses manual and mechanical means to manipulate tissues, bones, fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, bursae, tendon sheaths, scar tissue, and visceral organs. These techniques can greatly help with healing of the physical body after injury or strain. The manipulations that Dr. Brody uses may take place anywhere in/on the human body, including, but not limited to the spine, cranium, or abdominal cavity and/or extremities.
These manual and mechanical techniques involve the use of oscillation, thrust, pressure and sustained tension.
