Support for osteopathic manipulative treatment inclusion in chronic pain management guidelines: a narrative review
CONCLUSIONS: OMT provides an evidence-based management option to reduce pain levels, improve functional status, and decrease medication usage in chronic pain conditions, especially low back pain (LBP). Pain management guidelines should include OMT as a resource to alleviate chronic pain.PMID:33635954 | DOI:10.1515/jom-2019-0284 (Source: Journal of the American Osteopathic Association)

Teaching and use of cervical high-velocity, low-amplitude manipulation at colleges of osteopathic medicine
CONCLUSIONS: A majority of COMs provide education in their curricula related to cervical HVLA primarily in the first 2 years of medical education. However, instruction often excludes cervical HVLA to the upper regions of the cervical spine. At COMs where HVLA to the cervical spine is not taught, that decision is because the techniques are thought to be too difficult and the attendant medicolegal risk perceived to be too high. OMM/OPP department chairs expressed confidence in only a small proportion of their graduates having the ability to competently apply HVLA to the cervical spine immediately after completing their predo...

Poor match rates of osteopathic applicants into ACGME dermatology and other competitive specialties
CONCLUSIONS: DO match rates into dermatology and other competitive specialties were poor prior to GME unification and continue to remain low. This situation, when coupled with the closing of many AOA programs and MDs matching into former AOA positions, threatens the future of osteopathic physicians in competitive specialties. Osteopathic recognition is one way to potentially help preserve osteopathic representation and philosophy in the single accreditation system era. Programs should not be hesitant to consider osteopathic applicants for competitive specialties.PMID:33635959 | DOI:10.1515/jom-2020-0202 (Source: Journal of...
