What to Expect

Osteopathic medicine provides all the benefits of modern medicine with the added benefit of hands-on diagnosis and treatment through a system of modalities known as Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Osteopathic medicine emphasizes the individual and is focused on helping to achieve your highest level of wellness by focusing on health promotion and disease prevention.

During your first visit to the Osteopathic Center for Children, your physician will explain how osteopathic doctors (DO’s) bring an important and necessary dimension to standard medical care, how osteopathic care works, and how you can benefit from osteopathic treatment to promote your own healing.

After a hands-on diagnostic, your physician will discuss with you a plan of osteopathic care that is specific to your condition and health goals. This high quality level of healthcare — without invasive procedures — has brought local, regional and international patients to the clinic for many years. Visit us at the Osteopathic Center and receive a wonderful healing experience.

See What Our Patients Have to Say!

“My son saw Dr. Frymann once a week for three years. When my son first saw Dr. Frymann, he was severely self-abusive [and] had cerebral edema which Dr. Frymann got rid of homeopathically, which nobody else knew how to get rid of. He calmed down, and the self-abuse was totally over by the time he was 5 1/2. She saw us every week under her assistance program. I had another young son [at the time] so in saving Josh, it saved our whole family. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Frymann.”
— Joshua’s mom

“My sister and I were both lucky enough to receive treatments from (Dr. Frymann) for many years (and) we know and understand how amazing it is here. I don’t know how it works (with my children) but I know that it’s a miracle and I tell anyone and everyone who will listen to me how amazing it is (at Osteopathic Center for Children).With every treatment, we see bigger and better results.”
— Aurora’s mom
