Introduction to Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.


During the two month of my ISP, I saw a wide variety of medical conditions that can benefit from osteopathic manipulative treatments. In some cases, OMT was used to successfully alleviate symptoms (in the examples of headaches, muscle strains, or URIs), but occasionally it changed disease progression and significantly improved the outcome (as in the case of a boy with craniosynostosis who was able to avoid neurosurgery). By attending clinic, workshops, the national conference, and through independent study, I was able to fulfill the goals that were established at the beginning of this project.
