About Kent Osborn PT, MTC

Kent Osborn PT, MTC earned his physical therapy degree from the University of Florida in 1994. In 1996, while living on the west coast of the United States, he began taking osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) courses with Loren Rex D.O. He worked with Manlio Bollero DO in Buenos Aires. Over 1000 hours of varied continuing education includes a 2 year program of osteopathic manual therapy approaches and certifications in:
1. Manual therapy certification from St. Augustine University
2. Trigger point dry needling certification from Drs. Jan Dommerholt and Robert Gerwin
3. Fascial manipulation certification from the Associazione Manipolazione Fasciale of Luigi Stecco
His treatment approach integrates the evaluation and principles of osteopathic manual therapy with modern systems such as: trigger point dry needling, primal reflex release technique and viscero-somatic manipulation. The mix of approaches depends greatly on the problems and needs of each patient. Exercise makes up a very small portion of his Atlanta practice.
Kent focuses on the nervous system’s role in maintaining pain and dysfunction. Muscle and joint tightness and pain are often just reflections of how the nervous system has adapted or they are due to irritation of organ systems. There are ‘handles’ through which to affect the nervous system. They go far beyond massaging where it hurts or manipulating a joint in your back and hoping that the nervous system will react beneficially.
