OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATIVE TREATMENT
Paul's treatment goals are for patients to receive optimized fascial structure and balanced postural tensions in their bodies to allow improved self healing, efficient movement, fluid flow and autonomic function.
In combination with an effective program of physical activity (pilates, yoga, tai chi, physical therapy) a high level of wellness can be achieved.
"Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems." - Medical News Today.com
What does an Osteopath do?
"As part of their education, DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. Using OMT [Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment], your DO [Osteopath] can effectively treat your muscles and joints to relieve pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain, but it can also help provide relief for patients with asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome and migraines. In many cases, OMT can be used to complement, or even replace, drugs or surgery." - DoctorsThatDo.org

Paul received his Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine in 1988 from the College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pomona, CA (now named the Western University of Health Sciences). Paul served 11 years as an army doctor before returning to the Willamette Valley and civilian practice. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice, as well as a Clinical Assistant Professor of family medicine at Western University College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific-Northwest.
The Mountain Dulcimer is his instrument of choice which he believes embodies some fascinating and intricate parallels to the human body such as resonance, harmonics, octaves, balanced tensions as well as in its physical shape. Music is good medicine.
