ORI – Study of interest

Gary Fryer contributed an extensive paper to the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine in 2017 reviewing biological and psychological effect mechanisms of osteopathy. Therein, osteopathy was proposed to reduce pain and improve movement and function 1) bottom-up, affecting tissue and tissue receptors, and 2) top-down, affecting cognitive and psychological states. Therein, both biological and psychosocial […]

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 […]
