It’s a specialty that is rare in our area, but now Southern New Hampshire Health is offering neuromusculoskeletal medicine.
Musculoskeletal Medicine at Merrimack Medical Center opened in September of 2020 with James Sullivan, DO, serving as the practice’s board certified neuromusculoskeletal medicine specialist.
Neuromusculoskeletal medicine is a specialty that incorporates clinical knowledge based on sports medicine, orthopedics, and neurosurgery, and uses osteopathic manipulation. Osteopathic manipulation is a system of evaluation and treatment designed to achieve and maintain health by restoring normal function to the entire body. Osteopathic manipulation can be used to treat a broad range of conditions anywhere bones come together and make a joint.
In a new SolutionHealth podcast, Dr. Sullivan goes into more detail about what neuromusculoskeletal medicine is and how patients can benefit from it.
