Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) describes the hands-on techniques osteopathic physicians utilize to treat patients of all ages. There are many different treatment modalities that can be used to address the musculoskeletal system, lymphatic system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and gastrointestinal system. OMT can be gentle enough to improve the condition of a newborn baby or an acutely ill patient in the hospital, but it could also be effective to treat an elite athlete. Each treatment modality, or style, is not needed for every patient, but there is typically at least one treatment style that any patient could benefit from. When incorporated into a personalized treatment plan, OMT is known as OMM, or osteopathic manipulative medicine.

At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, skilled osteopathic physicians Dr. Matthew Barker and Dr. Melanie Gray are able to create customized treatment plans for individuals of all ages and needs to enhance their overall health and wellness. Located in Southlake and serving the surrounding areas of Midland, and Odessa, TX, our facility proudly welcomes individuals from all over the Greater Dallas-Fort Worth area, including Keller, Flower Mound, Grapevine, and Colleyville.


When it comes to osteopathic medicine, there are four main principles that help our skilled physicians design personalized treatment plans to improve your overall health.

  1. A person consists of mind, body, and spirit.
  2. Inherent to each individual is the ability to self-regulate, self-heal, and maintain wellness.
  3. The structure and function of the human body are directly related to each other.
  4. Comprehensive treatment is one that integrates each of the above tenets into the care of an individual.
