MSU Health Care Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine comes from humble beginnings, but has grown to accommodate a hefty caseload. What started during the 1980s in the basement of Lansing General Hospital’s professional building eventually expanded to the third floor of the hospital. It later moved to MSU’s Clinical Center before settling at its current location at 4660 S. Hagadorn Road, Suite 500.

“The numbers are daunting,” said Reddog Sina, D.O., assistant professor of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, who is board-certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (NMM/OMM), and sees patients daily at MSU Health Care OMM. These are busy days at the clinic. In 2023 alone, the clinic had 33,550 appointments. Patients range from newborns to centenarians seeking non-surgical treatment for a wide range of arthrodial and neuromuscular conditions including feeding issues, torticollis, neck pain, back pain, joint and muscle pain, headaches and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (commonly referred to as TMJ).

Through it all, MSU Health Care OMM has stayed true to its mission “to maintain a model of osteopathic medical practice, provide leadership in the transformation and promotion of osteopathic principles, and contribute to osteopathic philosophy’s biological, behavioral and clinical science foundation.”
