  • Neuromusculoskeletal medicine


    Neuromusculoskeletal medicine is a specialty in osteopathic medicine. It was defined to recognize doctors who had become experts in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal and related neurological medical problems. Both DOs and MDs have the option to train and practice in any of the medical specialties and sub-specialties. Neuromusculoskeletal medicine, however, is a specialty which is available only to DOs who have first completed a one-year AOA-approved residency.

  • Dry needling


    Dry needling, also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling, is an unproven technique in alternative medicine similar to acupuncture. It involves the use of either solid filiform needles or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. Dry needling is sometimes also known as intramuscular stimulation (IMS). While many studies have been performed to test the efficacy of dry needling as a treatment for muscle pain, there remains no scientific consensus as to whether or not it is effective. Some results suggest that it is an effective treatment for certain kinds of muscle pain, while other studies have shown no benefit compared to a placebo. There are not enough high-quality studies of the technique to draw clear conclusions about its efficacy.

  • Trigenics


    Trigenics is a neurological-based manual or instrument-assisted assessment and treatment system developed and patented by Allan Oolo Austin. The technique originally began as a chiropractic technique, but is now practiced by osteopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists. The technique is relatively infrequently used by chiropractors compared to other chiropractic techniques.
