OSTEOPATHIC CARE

This video shows the treatment protocol developed for the Multicenter Osteopathic Pneumonia Study of the Elderly (MOPSE), which showed that OMT for pneumonia reduced length of hospital stay in adults 50-74 years old and lowered in-hospital mortality rates for patients 75 and older. The study results were published in the JAOA. 

This 2007 paper from Osteopathic Medicine and Primary Care outlined the benefit of osteopathic care in a potential influenza epidemic, and OMT procedures as a resource for use in an overall treatment plan.
