Services

Osteopathic Medicine embraces a health centered, holistic approach that supports the body’s self-correcting mechanisms with time-tested, evidence-based recommendations and treatments.  At any visit we may decide to spend time discussing topics such as: dietary and supplement recommendations, ordering and interpreting lab work or imaging, posture retraining, review of customized home exercises/stretches, exploration of mindfulness, breathing and movement practices , etc..  Supplement and dietary recommendations may be based on Autonomic Response Testing.  Feel free to bring with you any supplements/medicines or samples of potentially allergenic/sensitive foods you would like me to test during our visit.  Injection procedures such as nerve blocks, prolotherapy, ligament/tendon injections, trigger point injections and/or dry-needling are also available during any session.

It is important to remember that all of my visits last about 40 minutes, and are billed as described below regardless of how that time is spent.  The decision to engage any of the above-mentioned topics or services will diminish or potentially eliminate time available for OMT on that day’s visit.  Even if the majority of the session is spent doing injections, or discussing self-care or Functional Medicine topics, it will always be my intention to offer at least a few minutes of OMT on the table to “rebalance” your nervous system and autonomics.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations can be made at no charge with more than 24 hours of notice.  Failure to show up for your appointment and cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance will result in a $50 cancellation fee.  As our online scheduling software (Vagaro) will not allow you to adjust the schedule or make new bookings within 24 hours, please email me directly if last minute services or appointment changes are necessary at:  doctorjoshdo@gmail.com.

Cultivating more familiarity with how the body expresses its basic fluid nature and wholeness is invaluable in the pursuit of greater resilience and Health.” ~ Josh Krembs, D.O.
