OMT Procedures Through Step-By-Step Video Instruction

You can now view step-by-step demonstrations of 122 OMT procedures. OMT Procedure Videos Online is a free educational resource for all osteopathic medical residents and students that was developed by the ACOFP’s Subcommittee on OMM/OPP Publications & Educational Resources, based on the ACOFP textbook Somatic Dysfunction in Osteopathic Family Medicine. 

Several osteopathic medical schools are using these videos as part of their standard curriculum in lecture and lab sessions, along with didactic information in ACOFP Educational/Video Resources for Teaching OMT Procedures.  Regardless of whether your school is using the didactic materials, you can use these videos to:

  • Refine your OMT skills.
  • Increase the number of OMT procedures you currently use.
  • Review in an easy to understand manner OMT procedures you may already know, but do not yet feel comfortable with.
  • Observe variations of OMT procedures that you have already mastered.

To access the videos, simply click on the link below, accept the licensing agreement and then select the videos you would like to see, sorting by anatomic area to be treated, type of OMT, or chapter in the ACOFP publication Somatic Dysfunction in Osteopathic Family Medicine, which can be purchased separately through Lippencott, Williams & Wilkins.
