Podcast - What is osteopathy?

Torsten Liem was interviewed about the mechanisms of action in osteopathy. This interview is about osteopathic touch, empathy and cognition in treatment.

I will take you on a journey from the beginning of osteopathy in Germany to the present day.
I also report on my own experiences with osteopaths from the early days of osteopathy.

You will also learn how osteopaths see disorders, diseases and health in contrast to conventional medicine. And I will share with you approaches that I have developed myself, such as psychosomatic osteopathy.

Likewise, I share my view of the principles of osteopathy today versus when osteopathy first began and what that means for your health.

Biological effects following Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

In a groundbreaking review, Dal Farra et al. (2024) systematically map the biological effects of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) across various body systems, with a particular focus on neurophysiological and musculoskeletal changes. The study, which followed rigorous scoping review guidelines and included 146 studies, underscores the growing interest in OMT research over the past two decades. While the findings suggest that OMT has significant therapeutic potential, particularly in neurophysiological and musculoskeletal health, the review also highlights the need for more standardized research to confirm these effects and their clinical relevance. Explore the detailed insights and future research directions outlined in this comprehensive review.
