Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is an advanced form of hands-on care used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness and injury. As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Angela Lim and Dr. Sandra Skates use OMM and acupuncture to move your muscles and joints using techniques that may incorporate stretching, gentle pressure and resistance. When appropriate, OMT can complement- and even replace- medication or surgery.

OMM can help people of all ages and backgrounds and can be used to:

  • Ease pain
  • Promote healing
  • Increase mobility

OMM can also treat health issues, including:

  • Asthma
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Menstrual pain
  • Migraines
  • Sinus disorders

What are DOs?
Dr. Angela Lim and Dr. Sandra Skates are osteopathic physicians, or DOs; physicians specially trained in OMM. Similar to an MD, DOs are fully licensed and provide a full range of services. But DOs offer a unique approach to patient care by:

  • Teaching patients how to prevent illness and injury by maintaining a healthy lifestyle;
  • Diagnosing patients by looking at the whole person;
  • Helping the body to heal itself;
  • Receiving special training in nerves, muscles, and bones
