Welcome to O.M.P.T Physical Therapy

A Revolution in Physical Therapy

O.M.P.T means Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. O.M.P.T practitioners are highly educated, trained and practiced – far more than traditional physical therapists, with 2,000 hours of additional study and training.

O.M.P.T Specialists use hands-on techniques to improve range of motion and function while alleviating symptoms. Our advanced approach offers patients a better quality of care and, in the end, better results over traditional physical therapy treatments.

At O.M.P.T Specialists, there is another key difference: every patient is given one-on-one, custom care. In traditional physical therapy settings, one PT often handles several cases at a single time. But every O.M.P.T practitioner gives complete attention to a single patient, which in itself means better, more focused care.

And since a vast majority of O.M.P.T cases (approximately 99%) are covered by insurance, there is no additional cost for the patients for this better-quality care.
The O.M.P.T Difference

Traditional physical therapy focuses on the treatment of mere symptoms. Often this means an unresponsive treatment because the real cause of the problem may be located elsewhere. This treatment of “referred pain” can lead to an inaccurate physical therapy evaluation and ineffective treatment.

Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy focuses on thorough, one-on-one evaluations by better-trained practitioners, hands-on techniques and cause-based treatments. Ultimately, the goal is to improve the quality of range of motion, maximizing function and comfort.


Facilities

O.M.P.T Specialists offers advanced patient care in a comfortable, welcoming environment that features high-tech equipment from Cybex, as well as a Triton traction table for neck and back patients. All of the equipment allow for controlled, safe treatments and, in the case of the Triton unit, provide in-depth printed reports that measure progress.

In addition to traditional physical therapy equipment, O.M.P.T Specialists is in the process of adding an aquatic therapy center for specialized, low-impact training and recovery. This addition is unique to the area, making us one of the only private clinics (not in a hospital) offering such an advanced treatment option.

Patient Testimonials

“I first met Mr. Fahmy last year after I had my knee replacement surgery. Michael and his staff gave me the attention I needed. I have had several back and knee problems and he was there for me the whole time.
I think he is the best physical therapist I have ever met: besides being very competent Michael is helpful as well as personable. I would not go to anyone else; I even recommended him and his center to my own patients.”
- Dr. Krugel, Southfield, MI

“I have been receiving physical therapy at O.M.P.T Specialists, Inc. The therapy provided in their facility is very high quality, utilizing state of the art equipment in a positive, collaborative environment. The therapists not only provide care for acute injury, but also assist their patients in planning for transition to independent continuation of exercise programs.
I am convinced that the use of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy has significantly contributed to the improvement of my spinal condition. The therapists at O.M.P.T Specialists are dedicated professionals who work hard to provide their patients with the best possible therapy.”
- Lisa M.
“O.M.P.T is second to none. I began seeing an O.M.P.T specialist after an ankle replacement surgery last year, and rather than just doing simple exercises or balancing on a board, he worked with me through a variety of massages and strengthening techniques to loosen my Achilles and help me walk without pain.
My surgeon did a wonderful job but if it were not for O.M.P.T I would not be walking nearly as well as I am. They took the time to consult with my surgeon before proceeding with therapy - that was so important to me. All in all I was treated wonderfully by the entire staff.”
- Kate L., Bloomfield Township, MI

“Mr. Michael Fahmy was so efficient and dedicated. He displayed a professional, caring manner. I had a partially ruptured tendon in my left knee, and he helped me to overcome my disability in just a few weeks.”
- Manfred H., Waterford, MI
“My doctor wanted me to go to a regular physical therapy clinic but friends had told me about Michael and I insisted on seeing him. The difference is unbelievable. He pays attention to me and has helped me so much. He really cares about people and I have told my orthopedic surgeon about him.”
- Reinart G., Bloomfield Hills, MI

O.M.P.T. is a physical therapy company with some outstanding personnel, including a professor of physical therapy at Oakland University who is one of the most respected physical therapists in town, that being John Krause.
Not only have I sent many patients to this facility, but I have also used them personally. I have found them to be an outstanding physical therapy facility not only to deliver clinical rehabilitation, but they also demonstrated the ability to perform objective testing for functional capacity evaluations. I would not hesitate to use this facility for an objective, detailed functional capacity evaluation.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Sincerely,
Ronald S. Lederman, M.D.

Often this means an unresponsive treatment because the real cause of the problem may be located elsewhere. This treatment of �referred pain� can lead to an inaccurate physical therapy evaluation and ineffective treatment.�

Dr. Krauss has authored/coauthored numerous books, book chapters and peer-reviewed articles on manual treatment for a variety of orthopedic conditions.
