Dr. Jason Hartman and Dr. Catherine Liebman of Flat Rock Health are pleased to be joining the team at Vincera Institute. Combining Medical Acupuncture with Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), they are able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal complaints and provide comprehensive non-invasive musculoskeletal care.
OMM involves assessing the structure and function of the joints, muscles, and connective tissues and restoring mobility and normal function through hands-on manipulation. This method helps to alleviate pain and restore mobility by focusing on the natural motion within the body’s structure and its relationship to function. Osteopathic treatment focuses on the musculoskeletal system as well as the inter-relationships of all physiologic systems (e.g., neurological, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, etc.).
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most widely practiced forms of medicine in the world. Known in the West as a safe and effective method for the treatment of pain, acupuncture’s applications are much broader and can be successfully used to help alleviate disorders of the respiratory, gastrointestinal, or autonomic systems, as well as treat musculoskeletal and psycho-emotional conditions. Acupuncture is concerned with the whole person and its beneficial effects are felt on all levels of the body.
Acupuncture uses very ﬁne needles that are inserted into speciﬁc points on the body. These points lie along channels of the body that allow for the free ﬂow of energy. When these channels are blocked, imbalance occurs and illness can result. Acupuncture attempts to clear these channels so energy can ﬂow freely and health can be restored. Sometimes, electric stimulation is used to enhance the pain relieving effects of acupuncture. This has been shown to increase the body’s release of its own natural form of morphine.
By combining these techniques Drs. Jason Hartman and Catherine Liebman are able to effectively treat a variety of complaints such as sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, headaches, and fibromyalgia to name a few.
