Dr. Singer is a board certified DO (Doctor of Osteopathy). Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is a set of hands-on techniques used by osteopathic physicians (DOs) to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, a DO moves a patient’s muscles and joints using techniques that include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.
As part of their education, DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, the body’s intricate system of muscles, nerves and bones. This advanced training provides DOs with a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others.
When appropriate, OMT can complement, and even replace, drugs or surgery. If Dr. Singer thinks an injection is indicated, he is also trained in both corticosteroid and trigger point injections for conditions such as arthritis, tendinitis, and some medical conditions such as headaches.
