Effects of Adding Respiratory Training to Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment on Exhaled Nitric Oxide Level and Cardiopulmonary Function in Patients With Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Limited research exists regarding nonpharmacologic management of pulmonary arterial hypertension, except for exercise training. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of osteopathic manipulative treatment alone and combined with respiratory training on fractional exhaled nitric oxide, and cardiopulmonary function in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension … ABSTRACT

The Effects of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment on Pain and Disability in Patients with Chronic Neck Pain: A Single-Blinded Randomized Controlled Trial

Neck pain (NP) affects as much as 70% of individuals at some point in their lives. Systematic reviews indicate that manual treatments can be moderately effective in the management of chronic, nonspecific NP. However, there is a paucity of studies specifically evaluating the efficacy of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of OMT in reducing pain and disability in patients with chronic NP … ABSTRACT

Construct validity and reliability of tests for sacroiliac dysfunction: standing flexion test (STFT) and sitting flexion test (SIFT)

Construct validity and reliability of tests for sacroiliac dysfunction: standing flexion test (STFT) and sitting flexion test (SIFT)

Sacroiliac dysfunction is characterized by a hypomobility of the range of motion of the joint, followed by a positional change regarding the relationship between the sacrum and the iliac. In general, the clinical tests that evaluate the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and its dysfunctions lack validity and reliability values. This article aims to evaluate the construct validity and intra- and inter-rater reliability of the standing flexion test (STFT) and sitting flexion test (SIFT) … MORE

Overcoming placebo-related challenges in manual therapy trials: the ‘whats and hows’ and the ‘touch equality assumption’ proposals

Overcoming placebo-related challenges in manual therapy trials: the ‘whats and hows’ and the ‘touch equality assumption’ proposals

Due to the significant increase in interest in placebos, biomedical scientists have incorporated placebo innovations into a modern methodological research scenario in order to increase the quality of clinical studies. Indeed, the randomised-controlled trial design has changed dramatically, and these changes have had an impact on manual therapy research as well. The present paper outlines the main difficulties that placebo-controlled trials pose for research in manual therapy, for example, designing ineffective sham protocols, the role of touch in triggering neurobiological responses, or the unique specificity of manual therapies. The paper then offers suggestions on how to overcome such challenges, for example by providing a definition of ‘specificity’ in the context of manual therapies, and specifically osteopathy, suggesting how to design adequate sham procedures, and by introducing the so-called ‘touch equality assumption’ … ABSTRACT

Single Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment Session Eliminates Percutaneous Coronary Intervention-Induced Upper Thoracic Pain in Elderly Male

Single Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment Session Eliminates Percutaneous Coronary Intervention-Induced Upper Thoracic Pain in Elderly Male

Restoration of blood flow is critical to a blocked coronary blood vessel. With respect to the heart, two main procedures, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) revascularize the area to prevent future blockages. Post-procedurally, bed rest iatrogenically produces non-life-threatening back pain. No exact guideline for the duration of post-procedural bed rest exists but recommendations range from 2 to 24 hours. However, research has shown that bed rest beyond 4 hours significantly increased the presence of post-procedural back pain. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is the term ascribed to a number of categories of manual techniques used by osteopathic physicians to treat somatic dysfunctions, to complement conventional management in patient care. In this case report, we discuss a patient with post-procedural upper thoracic pain that resolves with OMT, demonstrating that OMT may play a useful post-PCI role in the care of patients who undergo stent procedures … ABSTRACT

Osteopathy in Germany: attitudes, beliefs and handling among general practitioners – results of a nationwide cross-sectional questionnaire survey

Osteopathy is a type of complementary medicine based on specific manual techniques. In many countries, including Germany, the profession is not officially regulated, and evidence for the effectiveness of osteopathy is insufficient for most diseases. Nevertheless, many health insurances in Germany offer reimbursement for therapy costs, if osteopathy is recommended by a physician. This cross-sectional survey of German general practitioners (GPs) explored beliefs and attitudes towards osteopathic medicine and described their daily interactions with it … MORE
