This is a very brief overview of some common techniques that can be used to enhance treatment of MSK and soft tissue injuries in the wilderness. OMT provides an alternative, simple, non-resource intensive (just your hands and a mat!) treatment option with few contraindications for some of the most common ailments in wilderness settings. Successful treatment with these techniques takes practice so we encourage you become comfortable with the techniques prior to use. There exist multiple online resources for osteopathic- and non-osteopathic providers alike to become more familiar with the subtleties, research, and pathophysiology behind these techniques and more.
