Pain is an unpleasant sensation, ranging in intensity from slight through severe to indescribable. Sharp, throbbing, dull, nauseating, burning and shooting are among the qualities that pain can be experienced to have. While pain is association with an occurrence in the physical body, pain can also arise from the emotions. Pain can be a sign of tissue inflammation, an early warning sign that the body needs attention before it deteriorates to the point of disease.

Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment (OMT)
Osteopathic medicine was founded in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, a US medical doctor (MD). While osteopathic and chiropractic manipulation overlap in many ways , they are not identical. Specific techniques include muscle-energy, Jones counterstrain (also known as strain-counterstrain), myofascial release, and osteopathy in the cranial field.

Cranial Osteopathy is a medical treatment applied by licensed physicians (MD or DO) who have completed a medical education and numerous years of additional training in this specialty. Basic introductory courses in cranial osteopathy include 40 to 80 hours of intense training. At Tenpenny IMC, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny has been highly trained in the study of anatomy and physiology of the cranium and its inter-relationship with the body as a whole. This gentle technique can be used for the prevention AND for the treatment of disease. Osteopathy in the cranial field is an expansion of the general principles of osteopathy. Cranial is safe, gentle, and effective for all ages including newborns. A single 24 hour course provides a certificate. For a more information on cranial osteopathy, go here.
