Osteopathic Treatment Q&A

What is osteopathic treatment?

Osteopathic treatments include holistic approaches to caring for patients rather than simply treating symptoms with medications or invasive treatments.

As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Empey uses lifestyle changes, custom nutrition plans, medical weight loss, osteopathic manipulation, regenerative medicine, and other natural remedies to improve how your body functions, looks, and feels. He is highly trained, with many years of experience in internal medicine and holistic primary care.

Which osteopathic treatments are available?

Some of the osteopathic treatments available at Thriverock Active Healthcare include:

  • Medically supervised weight loss
  • Customized nutrition and fitness plans
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments
  • Treatment with exosomes 
  • Osteopathic manipulation (hands-on therapy for musculoskeletal conditions)
  • Dietary supplements
  • All-natural hair restoration
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy 

Dr. Empey only prescribes medicine if absolutely necessary to recover from an illness or properly manage a disease. He specializes in preventive medicine that significantly reduces your chance of getting sick, becoming injured, or developing chronic disease.

Osteopathic treatments can also improve your gut, brain, muscle, and joint health.

Which osteopathic treatments are best for me?

Dr. Empey discusses your medical history and symptoms to determine which osteopathic treatment best suits you. He weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. 

He also completes a physical exam and may order blood tests or other diagnostic tests to determine the best osteopathic treatments.

What should I expect during osteopathic treatment?

What you can expect during osteopathic treatment depends on which condition you have, how severe it is, and your treatment preferences. 

During osteopathic manipulation, Dr. Empey uses his hands to manipulate soft musculoskeletal tissues, eliminate misalignment, and ease pain while you relax on a comfortable exam table.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) uses platelets sourced from your blood to reduce joint pain, accelerate healing, and restore hair regrowth. PRP can also reduce wrinkles, lines, and other common signs of aging.

Dr. Empey may recommend diet and exercise changes, dietary supplements, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or medically supervised weight loss to improve your overall health and reduce chronic disease risks. He tailors each treatment to your needs and follows up with you to ensure superior results.
