Osteopathy Research on Sports Disorders
Did you know research has shown osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) improves walking, shoulder function, standing, &foot & ankle injuries? Did you know athletes who receive OMT have decreased chance of stress fracture?
Below is a list of clinical research showing effectiveness of manual osteopathy for a number of sports and joints mobility disorders.
Jarski RW et al (Altern Ther Health Med, 2000) demonstrated that OMT improved walking after knee or hip surgery.
Knebl JA et al (JAOA, 2002) used OMT in a randomized controlled trial to improve shoulder function in the elderly.
Eisenhart AW et al (JAOA, 2003) showed OMT improves ankle injuries in the ER.
Howell JN et al (JAOA, 2006) showed OMT improves Achilles tendinitis.
Wynne MM et al (JAOA, 2006) showed OMT improves plantar fasciitis.
Alburquerque-Sendín F et al (Man Ther, 2009) showed that OMT improves standing stability.
Moore SD et al (J Orthop Sports Phys Ther, 2011) demonstrated that among collegiate baseball players, OMT lessened shoulder tightness.
Brumm LF et al (JAOA, 2013) did a cohort study and showed less stress fractures occurred in cross-country athletes who received OMT.
Barnes PL et al (J Bodyw Mov Ther, 2013) used objective measures to detect changes in neck muscle function after OMT.
