ORI – Study of interest

A two-part extensive review of Paolo Tozzi published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies in 2015 proposed a neuro-fasciagenic model of somatic dysfunction. The author outlines mechanisms underlying dysfunctional processes addressed by manual therapy and proposes that somatic dysfunction is partially, if not entirely, mediated by fascia. Therein, the nociceptive model of somatic […]

ORI – Study of interest

Manal Zein-Hammoud and Paul R. Standley published a research paper in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association in 2015. The researchers investigated the cellular and molecular mechanisms OMT generates upon the main fascial cells: fibroblasts. Fibroblasts respond to mechanical force (different strains) with secretion of anti-inflammatory chemicals and growth factors, thus improving muscle repair […]

ORI – Study of interest

In 2016, Frontiers in Neuroscience published a paper by Giandomenico D’Alessandro and colleagues outlining a theoretical framework for osteopathy. The authors identified interoception and sensitization as key neurological concepts, therein, emphasizing an interoceptive paradigm. They propose that osteopathy uses touch to modify sensitization states using interoceptive pathways. In detail, osteopathy was hypothesized to produce anti-inflammatory […]

ORI – Study of interest

For those wondering what the mechanisms underlying joint cracking are, Gregory N. Kawchuk and colleagues provided interesting insights within a study published in PLoS One in 2015. The authors used real-time magnetic resonance imaging to visualize the cracking of metacarpophalangeal joints, initiated through increasing mechanical long-axial traction. Therein, the authors were able to demonstrate that […]

ORI – Study of interest

PLoS One published a study by Stevan Walkowski and colleagues in 2014, scrutinizing the claimed enhancement of immune response in course of OMT. The researchers investigated whether OMT induces a rapid modification of cytokine and leukocyte levels in circulation. Therefore, healthy subjects were treated with lymphatic and thoracic OMT. Afterwards, cytokine levels were evaluated using […]

ORI – Study of interest

Darren J Edwards and Craig Toutt published a promising prospective observational cohort study in Health Psychology Open in 2018. The comorbidity between mental health conditions and chronic pain led the researchers to investigate the impact of osteopathic manipulative treatment (2-week period) upon psychological outcome measures in a chronic pain sample (n=58) using six questionnaires. The […]

ORI – Study of interest

A paper recently published by Giles Gyer and colleagues in the Journal of Integrative Medicine reviewed mechanistic studies that demonstrated neural responses following spinal manipulation (peripheral, spinal and supraspinal) to identify neurophysiological effect mechanisms of spinal manipulation. The authors found clear neurophysiological changes like neural plastic changes, alteration in motor neuron excitability, and increase in […]
