Naprapathy OMT Compared to Therapeutic Massage

Medical Information:
Name: Naprapathy
CPT Code: 97140
Procedure Type: Mobilization of the muscular skeletal system.
Preparation: Patient lays in a supine or prone position and is medically drapped.
How Performed: The treatment process legs, hips, torso, posterior thorasic and cervical spine in prone position, in the supine position the occiput, cervical spine, arms and legs. I also release the viscera around the organs.
Followup: Patient is encouraged to follow up for six sessions for optimal results.

Naprapathy, OMT and Therapeutic massage increases lymphatic drainage, boosts the circulatory system and detoxifies the body and helps to relax the muscles. Naprapathy relaxes the muscular skeletal system with a unique method that corrects and changes imbalances in the muscular skeletal system acting on the muscles, tendons and ligaments that bind the bone structure together and enable it to have dynamic movement.

Clinically 80% of most pain is caused by structural pressure on the peripheral nerves, this means that the structure is not properly balanced causing shifting in the position of the vertebra of the spine, hips and extremities. Naprapathy targets imbalances of the muscles, tendons and ligaments and causes balance in the spine, hips and extremities.

Is Naprapathy painful? Naprapathy can be done very lightly, with medium or deep pressure, based on the patients tolerance and preferences.

Is Naprapathy safe for osteoporosis? Yes Naprapathy can be safe and effective on patients with osteoporosis, if a patient is diagnosed with this disease. Naprapathy is administered more softly, changing the tissues more slowly over time.

Is Naprapathy a vital part of good structural health? Yes, it corrects, balances and detoxifies the soft tissues, while correcting structural changes that cause nerve pain.

Is Naprapathy important to good athletic conditioning? Yes, Naprapathy gets rid of metabolites in the muscles and corrects and balances the muscles, ligaments and tendons preventing muscular injuries and structural changes that cause injury and loss of performance.

What ages of patients are most appropriate for Naprapathy? Children above the age of 4 years through adulthood including all geriatric patients.

What is the difference between Naprapathic OMT adjustment and Chiropractic adjustment? OMT Includes full cranial adjustment called Stomatognathic adjustment that opens the vascular system in the head, supplying more blood and oxygen to the brain, and eliminates cranial nerve entrapment. OMT uses stretching to adjust the spine, hips and extremities. Chiropractic is a direct vectoral adjustment on the spine and it does not include soft tissue work.

Benefits of Naprapathy, OMT and Stomatognathic Adjustment:

  • Relieves back pain and sore aching muscles.

  • Relieves chronic pain.

  • Relieves pain due to trauma.

  • Relieves headaches and other disorders affecting the cranium.

  • Relieves pain of the arms, hands, legs and feet.

  • Improves lymphatic drainage

  • Improves circulation and eliminates metabolites from the muscles.
