Treatment of Pain and Injury

Outcome & Case Data - Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment



Kasengerg TP
An objective measurement of nerve function in studies of sensory complaints
JAOA: The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association 1976 Jan;75(5):533

The increased numbers of peripheral nerve complaints associated with traumatic injury incurred during World War II initiated examination of the functional integrity of the peripheral nervous system by means of electrical stimulation. The changes observed in nerve conduction velocity of involved nerves following OMT are providing data in support of the effectiveness of OMT in the treatment of peripheral sensory disorders.

OMT: the plus factor in sports medicine.  Osteopathic Annals 1985 Apr;13(4):156-158

Osteopathic medicine and sports medicine are types of rehabilitation techniques that can be used together to maximize recovery from injury. The role of OMT is characterized by the importance of maintaining motion and utilizing the proper amount of stress to keep the athlete in top physical condition. From the time of acute injury to follow-up treatment, OMT principles and philosophy can be applied to maximize the degree and rate of recovery and allow the athlete to return to the field of activity in the best possible condition.

Shoulder pain and repetition strain injury to the supraspinatus muscle: etiology and manipulative treatment JAOA: The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association 1989 Aug;89(8):1037-1040, 1043-1045

Repetition strain injury of the supraspinatus muscle is not an isolated event, but rather a form of microtrauma that affects the entire shoulder girdle. These injuries can be helped by treatment involving OMT combined with home exercise and modification of work posture.
