Patients that consult osteopaths mostly come with back pain, often low back pain and/or cervical complaints.
When I then look at osteopathic scientific research and even osteopathic post graduate training sessions, I see subjects on the eventual effectiveness of osteopathic treatment in chronic pancreatitis, mental illness, fertility, endocrinological diseases, heart pathology, psychosomatic disorders, pediatric diseases, neuroendocrine dysfunctions, endometriosis, osteopathy on embryos,...
Beside the fact that these investigations and courses could contain interesting information, I consider it a poor development in osteopathic research and in osteopathic research evolution.
Why not focus on our core business first?
I am not against all the above but I would like to promote more basic research and courses on musculoskeletal complaints.
