As someone who will be applying to osteopathic medical schools this year, I am interested in having a better understanding of the "science" behind OMM since I consider it to be an integral part of my studies sinice we will be tested on it by the COMLEX. I have searched Pubmed, but to be honest the information is rather lacking in any scientific basis. Can anyone point me in the direction of any well constructed studies that back up the use of OMM? While I wholeheartedly agree with the DO philosophy, if I can't find any studies that prove the benefits of OMM, I think its time for more research to be completed or for it to be dropped from the licensing exam. Anyone have any links to studies?
