Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) Practitioners Working with Behavioral Optometrists

IMT Clinics offers a variety of services for clients working with Behavioral Optometrists. One of the diagnostic tools, used is motility testing, which consists of palpating rhythms, such as the heart beat, fluctuation of cerebrospinal fluid, the movement of lymph in the lymphatic system, muscle contraction, and more. These rhythms can be used to determine how a person’s body changes and adjusts to different pairs of glasses and how the neuromuscular system accommodates to how we see.

“Visual problems are very common in today’s society and take many forms. A good number of these go undiagnosed or untreated, but are amenable to osteopathic treatment, including functional eye problems and visual strain.” (Dolgin, 2003).
