A D.O. Physiatrist is a back pain specialist!
Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM) or Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) involves a physician using their hands to diagnose, treat and prevent injury and illness. OMT can be used alone or side by side with medication, therapy and surgery, depending on the circumstances.
Patients may use less medication and therapy or even no medication, therapy or surgery when they receive OMT.
Many patients seek Dr. Miller's care and even drive long distances for Osteopathic Manual Medicine in Tucson because they want care for the whole person, and to avoid medication and surgery whenever possible.
