Absolutely, but in concert with medically accepted options, such as a sound medical workup that establishes a "working diagnosis" of rheumatoid arthritis. This includes a team of a family or internal medicine (primary care) and rheumatology physicians who usually manage your medication and make recommendations for options. One non-pharmacologic (no drugs) option is a unique hands-on osteopathic manipulative treatment, or "O.M.T." for short. Board-certified D.O.'s, or osteopathic physicians, who utilize this manual skill can definitely be of help here. It can supplement formal physical therapy, such as that on land or in the water (Aquatherapy). The American Academy of Osteopathy in Indianapolis, IN can help you depending on where you live.

Does Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment also include medication?

Sometimes both. However, OMT, in my experience works well in combination with accepted medical and many 'alternative' or 'complimentary' treatment options.

Can OMT help in strengthening internal muscles of the body?

Sometimes. Depending on the skill and background of the practitioner who offers OMT, it can help in concert with other accepted medical options.
