Update: Evidenced Based Medicine
Osteopathic manipulation is used to treat musculoskeletal disorders for example back pain, neck pain and sports injuries. Manipulation relies on focussed attention to tight muscles, locked joint, strained muscle groups and general stiffness.
Correcting imbalances through manipulation of tissues allows the body to continue repairing and healing itself. The body’s healing potential is further encouraged through advice on stretching, diet, posture correction, sleeping positions, insole prescription, hot/cold compression, yoga and pilates exercises.
Osteopathic manipulation when used on its own or as part of a treatment package with exercise prescription, pain control, and postural advice has been shown to be very effective
Conclusions from Current Research
Bryan gives a talk on “Understanding Neck Pain” to OCBC staff April 2011
A large majority of the patients we see at OPRC are office workers struggling with neck and shoulder pain or stiffness. In many cases, people try to put up with the pain and discomfort for as long as they can, and resort to pain killers or plasters for short term relief. These stop-gap measures, however, only mask the pain symptoms and do not address the underlying causes of neck pain. We believe that in most cases neck pain can be treated and self-managed to minimize its recurrence.
