Doctors of osteopathy are highly trained in the art and science of osteopathic manipulation treatment, or OMT for short. This hands-on method can help doctors diagnose certain musculoskeletal health conditions, as well as improve a patient’s blood circulation and reduce their pain. Osteopathic manipulation is a holistic approach to pain relief, and is safe to perform on babies, children and adults. Pregnant women also benefit from OMT to help reduce pain and improve the quality of their sleep.
Dr. Kevin Bartolomucci is a doctor of osteopathy (DO) with years of clinical experience providing OMT to patients with a wide variety of health conditions. If you’re ready to find safe, effective pain relief that doesn’t involve conventional methods or prescription pain pills, don’t wait. Request an evaluation at our Greensburg office to get started.
Joint injections (also known as steroid injections) are a minimally invasive, alternative way to reduce pain and inflammation in the joints. A joint injection can contain one of two ingredients: a corticosteroid or hyaluronic acid (HA). All of these are designed to lubricate the joint, reduce symptoms for several months at a time, and can even help to preserve the structure and function of the joint. Joint injections are also less likely to produce negative side effects when compared with other types of steroid treatments.
Not sure if joint injections are right for you? We can help you determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. If you are seeking an injection for joint pain, make an appointment with Bartolomucci Family Medicine online or by calling our office today!

OMT can be used to treat a wide variety of issues that cause physical pain, limited mobility, and other issues including:
