Lower back pain is common, and your body can retain fluid, which can cause other issues. OMM can help ease the pain, reduce fluid accumulation and in turn promote more restful and restorative sleep.Patients with acid reflux find relief when Dr. Lim performs OMM related to abdominal tissues. In addition, patients with asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) can also find relief, especially if their medications and inhalers aren’t working. “Flareups tend to cause tension in the rib cage and abdominal areas,” explains Dr. Lim. “OMM can address nerve issues along the central diaphragm and rib cage, freeing up the lungs to help patients relax and breathe better.”Post surgical patients can benefit from OMM, improving the healing response following surgery.
