I had Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. My right arm was numb medially and had paresthesia laterally. It was resolved after two sessions of OMM.jonb12997 said:I just got an extension lesion corrected by my lab partner in class... I would definetly say it works
My wife was in a car wreck and had some shoulder and rib problems. She couldn't breathe well and was hyperventilating. MD's at the ER wanted to give her some Ativan and some extensive (expensive) PT, bed rest, no work (no $$ to pay bills), and possibly surgery if it didn't just work itself out. I told her to find a DO. A DO resident at an urgent care clinic we went to was able to manipulate her injury and prescribe a muscle relaxer and an NSAID. She was feeling great and back to work 2 days later without PT, surgery, or narcs.carn311 said:I'm having some trouble finding any research on osteopathic manipulation's effectivness.
Does anyone have any personal experiences with it working/not working, or links to any conclusive research?
I get a lot of expired rib dysfunctions, as well as flexed dysfunctions of the thoracic vertebra, with the occasional innominate upshear. OMT has always helped my dyfunctions and I usually start feeling better instantly.MaloCCOM said:Similarly, a guy at our clinic had the same thing done. read about it at my blog. It's called: OMT: Peak flow
