All patients at The Insititute of Integrative Manual Therapy undergo a comprehensive evaluation utilizing IMT diagnostics and assessment tools. Upon completion of the evaluation, an IMT practitioner develops an individualized treatment plan. A typical IMT treatment plan integrates IMT, advanced Physical Therapy, nutritional counseling, body-based psychotherapeutics, and various advanced therapeutic technologies.
Nutritional Counseling is an important and integral part of an IMT treatment plan. Clinical experience at The Insititute of Integrative Manual Therapy has shown when nutrition and diet are integrated with IMT, recovery from dysfunction and disease is accelerated. Nutritional counseling includes nutritional supplements, herbs, homeopathic medicine, and dietary intervention. Dietary intervention may include targeted elimination diets (i.e. gluten, refined sugars, dairy, additional allergens, and/or preservatives) and meal planning.
To provide more comprehensive diagnostic information and enhance treatment results with IMT, The Insititute of Integrative Manual Therapy offers the following advanced therapeutic technologies and services.
