ORI – Study of interest

Stephen Paulus published a substantial philosophical paper in 2013 within the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine. The author reviewed the writings of A.T. Still to extend the core principles of osteopathic philosophy, terminating ongoing oversimplification. Ten revised principles were introduced and explained which attempt to outline our historically distinctive philosophy to health care. These principles […]

ORI – Study of interest

Italian researchers Federica Tamburella and colleagues published an interesting study in Frontiers of Physiology in 2019. They randomized 30 blinded asymptomatic participants into placebo (passive touch) and OMT (whole body correction of somatic dysfunctions) groups. Both groups underwent 45 minutes of intervention and three measurements (before treatment, immediately after treatment, and three days after treatment) […]

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 […]
