Are you experiencing constipation, abdominal cramping, pain, bloating and changes in bowel habits? Is it negatively affecting your daily life? Have you tried all means of treatment but have not been able to get any relief? Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), the all-natural alternative, may be the answer for you.
Studies have shown:
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms are a result of the interaction between the food we eat and the resident bacterial community in our large bowel. Frequently, there is associated hypersensitivity of the colonic wall to the ‘stretching and distention’ that normally occur during food digestion resulting in pain and discomfort.Next section
The cause behind the development of IBS is not clear but may occur after a severe gastro-intestinal infection, the use of antibiotics, or prolonged stress.Next section
The symptoms of IBS may range from mild to severe and may occur at least 3 days a week for 3 or more continuous months.The most common symptoms include:
Diagnosis of IBS is based on the symptoms and is a diagnosis of exclusion. Tests to rule out other conditions with similar symptomsmay include:

Frequently asked questions
What should I wear to my appointments?
Loose-fitting clothing or gym clothes
How many visits will I need?
This is variable depending upon what is being treated and how extensive your treatment needs to be. Our goal is to bring you to optimal health so that you won’t need to continually return.
What is the difference between licensing and board certification for a physician, and do you have any of these?
Physicians are required to be licensed to practice medicine in the U.S. by the licensing board in each state they wish to practice.
A board certified physician has completed an additional training program in a specialty and has passed a rigorous exam to assess his or her knowledge, skills and experience to provide quality patient care in that specialty.
In my case, I am licensed to practice medicine in Texas, and I have two board certifications. The first one is Family Medicine and the second one is Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.
