Osteopathic Manipulation Makes a Neuropsychological Difference

2019-08-20 20:17:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Patients with pain commonly experience cognitive impairment. While symptoms of pain are effectively treated with osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), the cognitive piece is vastly ignored. Pain-induced cognitive dysfunction can be severe and is particularly apparent in working memory and attention. There is good reason to also expect cognitive responsiveness to OMT. Previous research has already reported related psychiatric outcomes, including relief from stress, self-perception and anxiety, suggesting that OMT may produce more global effects on cortical processing than currently thought.

Description

Patients with pain commonly experience cognitive impairment. While symptoms of pain are effectively treated with osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), the cognitive piece is vastly ignored. Previous research has already reported related psychiatric outcomes, including relief from stress, self-perception and anxiety, suggesting that OMT may produce more global effects on cortical processing than currently thought. The current study is designed to extend previous research in several ways:

1. To describe the neuropsychological (NP) characteristics of adults with pain within an osteopathic and allopathic setting

2. To correlate NP with clinical outcomes (pain severity, number/location of osteopathic lesions)

3. To determine if OMT is associated with improved NP function.

4. To use saliva to measure cytokine concentration of IL-1β,IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α

5. To correlate cytokine concentrations with clinical outcomes (pain severity, number/location of osteopathic lesions, NP)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Licensed physicians trained in OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE. An osteopathic physician, also known as D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy), is able to perform surgery and prescribe medications.

Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
