Background: Manipulative therapy is widely used in the treatment of spinal disorders. Manipulative techniques are under debate because of the possibility of adverse events. To date, the efficacy of manipulations compared to sham manipulations is unclear. The purpose of the study is: to assess the efficacy of manipulative therapy compared to sham in adults with a variety of complaints. Study design: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

Background High-velocity low-amplitude thrust manipulations (HVLAM) are routinely used in osteopathic treatment. Despite the large number of studies that have been realized till now, the effects of spinal HVLAM on the physiological properties of muscles and nerves are not fully characterized. Objective The present study was designed to investigate the effects of a spinal lumbar L4/L5 HVLAM on the functional properties of the soleus T reflex in asymptomatic young adults.

A simple treatment plan for manual therapists is presented based on current evidence-based literature, it is designed to lessen chronic pain and inflammation in the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). A chronic continuous or intermittent gastrointestinal tract dysfunction, IBS appears due to dysregulation of brain-gut-microbe communication. An overview of its management using Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is described. In IBS OMT focuses on the nervous and circulatory systems, spine, viscera, thoracic and pelvic diaphragms in order to restore homeostatic balance, normalize autonomic activity in the intestine, promote lymphatic flow and address somatic dysfunction.

Manual Therapy
Accurate palpation of lumbar spinous processes is a key component of spinal assessment. It is also vital for the accurate measurement of spinal motion when using external skin marker-based measurement systems, which are being increasingly used to understand low back disorders and their management. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of lumbar spinous process palpation using positional magnetic resonance imagery (MRI) (pMRI).

Spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) has been recognized as an effective treatment modality for many back, neck and musculoskeletal problems. One of the major issues of the use of SMT is its safety, especially with regards to neck manipulation and the risk of stroke. The vast majority of these accidents involve the vertebro-basilar system, specifically the vertebral artery (VA) between C2/C1. However, the mechanics of this region of the VA during SMT are unexplored. This study presents first ever data on the mechanics of this region during cervical SMT performed by clinicians.

Strokes, typically involving vertebral artery dissection, can follow cervical spinal manipulative therapy, and these types of stroke occur rarely. There is disagreement about whether a strong association between neck manipulation and stroke exists. An earlier systematic review found two relevant studies of association that used controls, which also discussed the limitations of the two papers. This systematic review updates the earlier review, and aims to determine whether conclusive evidence of a strong association exists.

Strain–counterstrain is an osteopathic technique which is widely used for treating mobility restrictions in the neck. We aimed to investigate whether a single strain–counterstrain intervention is more effective than a sham intervention in improving restricted cervical range of motion in patients with neck pain.

Osteopathic Family Physician
Irritable bowel syndrome is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders encountered by family physicians, often as a direct result of significant stressors. IBS is a disorder characterized by abdominal pain, bloating and severe bowel irregularity and is commonly encountered by family physicians treating patients on a daily basis. It is a relatively benign functional bowel disorder, but is often severely debilitating. The pathophysiology of IBS is poorly understood, in part because of a lack of anatomic signs specific to IBS. This review article presents current therapies targeting the predominant symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, or any combination of these in the pre

Dermatological diseases, such as dysesthesia syndromes, stasis dermatoses and hyperhidrosis are difficult to treat due to their complex etiologies. Current theories suggest these diseases are caused by physiological imbalances, such as nerve impingement, localized tissue congestion and impaired autonomic regulation. Osteopathic manipulative therapy targets these physiological dysfunctions and may serve as a beneficial therapeutic option.

There is ongoing debate over the existence of cranial motion resulting from manual manipulation during Cranial Osteopathy (CO). The purpose of this study was to review and summarize the literature regarding cranial mobility and human cranial stiffness in order to evaluate the validity of cranial movement in humans due to manual manipulation.

Mechanical neck pain is a common condition that affects an estimated 70 percent of persons at some point in their lives. Little research exists to guide the choice of therapy for acute and subacute neck pain. The objective of this trial was to determine the relative efficacy of spinal manipulation therapy, medication and home exercise with advice for acute and subacute neck pain in both the short and long term.

The use of a treatment by health care providers requires examination of the evidence of effectiveness and assessment of the evidence for risks or adverse events caused by the treatment. Spinal manipulation therapy has strong evidence for treatment of low back pain, neck pain, headache and migraine. This is supported by numerous systematic reviews of a large number of randomized controlled trials.

Visceral manual therapy is increasingly used by U.K. osteopaths and manual therapists, but there is a paucity of research investigating its underlying mechanisms, and in particular in relation to hypoalgesia. The aim of this study was to investigate the immediate effects of osteopathic visceral mobilization on pressure pain thresholds.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment is a unique aspect of osteopathic medicine that has served as a useful adjunct to traditional surgical and pharmacological treatment of medical conditions for more than 100 years. Using an approach based on five basic body functions, as well as traditional modern medical and surgical therapeutics, OMT enhances the body's innate ability to fight inflammation and other systemic results of disease states.

The elbow is conventionally described as a uniaxial hinge joint and the pivot of proximal forearm rotation; the joint surfaces guide motion, the ligaments maintain joint integrity and the muscles cause motion. However, this simplicity is less clear on detailed examination and masks uncertainties over its component structures and their functions.

This crossover study revealed that cranial osteopathic manipulative medicine effectively and progressively reduced cerebral tissue oxygenation in healthy adults. The authors hypothesize that the same technique may be applied as a nonpharmacologic procedure to reduce excessive cerebral blood flow and to alleviate intracranial hypertension.

This study investigated the effect of High Velocity Low Amplitude thrust technique (in thoracic spine) on the posterior deltoid and lower trapezius muscles during treadmill walking. Subjects had 2 minute recordings of target muscle EMG activity during treadmill walking before and after control (sham ultrasound) or experimental (HVLAT) interventions. No significant difference was found between groups, indicating that HVLAT had no effect on the target muscle EMG activity during this functional task. Further study examining different functional tasks within a similar experimental model is warranted.
