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 […]
