Does the inter-osseous membrane fascial dysfunction exist ? An observational study comparing palpation to ultrasound measurements

There is a lack of evidence to support a correspondence between osteopathic palpation and anatomical findings. The concept of dysfunction could be defined using more accurate words when describing palpatory findings if they could be explained by objective measurements. The forearm Interosseous Membrane (IOM) is a fascia often evaluated by osteopaths, searching for Fascial Dysfunction (FD). We measured IOM physical characteristics, such as elasticity and thickness, with ultrasound (US) and then compared it with osteopaths’ FD assessment … ABSTRACT
