Eugene Sports and Orthopedic Medicine Center uses osteopathic manual therapy to help you avoid surgery by improving joint and muscle function resulting from injuries, because it:
Treats the true cause of your musculoskeletal problem
Provides manual therapy that improves physical movement
The elegance of osteopathic medical manual therapy is that your body is naturally programmed to function normally. Sometimes an injury causes your body to malfunction. The treatment uses gentle manual techniques that give your body the opportunity it needs to return to normal function.

Your orthopedic medical diagnosis may indicate that you have restricted movement in your joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or facial tissue. After assessing the direction in which your movement is restricted, Dr. Peterson uses gentle manipulation to release the restriction and restore movement, which restores your normal function.
Gentle hands−on manipulation of spinal and extremity joints and soft tissues.
After studying osteopathic medicine, Dr. Peterson chose to treat patients using non−surgical therapies that enhance your body’s natural ability to maintain health and recover from injury, without the extensive use of expensive prescription drugs. Osteopathic treatments use hands−on, manipulative therapy that can restore your normal function by working with your body’s own restorative powers.
The body is a unit.
Structure and function are inter-related.
The body possesses natural self-regulatory mechanisms.
The body has the inherent capacity to repair dysfunction.
When the normal adaptability is disrupted, or when environmental stresses overcome the body’s capacity for self−maintenance, dysfunction may occur.
The movement of bodily fluids is essential to the maintenance of health.
The nerves play a crucial part in controlling the fluids of the body.
The elegance of Osteopathic Manual Therapy is that it enhances your body’s natural ability to be programmed to function in a healthy, normal way.
