Osteopathic Manipulation

omt-osteopathic-manipulative-therapy-thumb

Osteopathic manipulative treatment, or OMT, is hands-on care. It involves using the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury. Using OMT, your osteopathic physician will move your muscles and joints using techniques including stretching, gentle pressure and resistance.

Who can benefit from OMT?

OMT can help people of all ages and backgrounds. The treatment can be used to ease pain, promote healing and increase overall mobility. OMT is often used to treat muscle pain. But it can also help patients with a number of other health problems.

Injured? We Do Sutures and Casting

If you fall off a ladder or take a tumble on your mountain bike, the thought of spending hours (and great expense) in the emergency room is almost worse than the pain. At WFPC, we can handle minor injuries as out-patient care, right here in our office, with the provider you know.

Diabetes Care

Managing diabetes can be a struggle. West Front Primary Care has the tools, expertise and staff in place to help you succeed. Our standards of care for all types of diabetes are state-of-the-art, with technology and organization on your side.

Gynecological Services

WFPC providers offer routine gynecological checkups and related services as part of our family practice emphasis. No need for a specialist.

IUDs and Contraceptive Implants

IUDs and implants are low-maintenance, highly effective birth control. West Front Primary Care provides these services, even if you’re not a patient with us.

Vasectomy

Vasectomy is a safer procedure that causes fewer complications than tubal ligation in women.

Although vasectomy can be relatively expensive, it is a one-time cost. The cost of other methods, such as birth control pills or condoms and spermicide, are likely to be greater over time.

Dermatology Procedures

Treatments for acne, pre-cancerous and cancerous skin conditions, suspicious moles, etc. begins here at WFPC, with the familiar provider that knows your full health history.

Free Immunizations for Qualifying Children

Immunizing Your Child Keeps ALL Our Kids Safe

West Front Primary Care is devoted to protecting our community through standardized immunization schedules for all children. Ask our staff about the immunizations that may be available for your child, often subsidized by the state of Michigan or another medical authority.

Travel Medical Consultation

traverse-city-travel-medical-consultation-thumb

Travellers intending to visit a destination in a developing country should consult a travel medicine clinic or medical practitioner before the journey. This consultation should take place at least 4–8 weeks before the journey and preferably earlier if long-term travel or overseas work is planned. However, last-minute travellers can also benefit from a medical consultation, even as late as the day of travel.

The consultation will include information about the most important health risks (including traffic accidents) for the areas of travel, determine the need for any vaccinations and/or antimalarial medication, and identify any other medical items that the traveller may require.
