Final Omt & Acup Stfm 27 April 2007

  1. 1. A Hands-On Introduction to Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment & Acupuncture in a Case of Low Back Pain <ul><li>Gautam J. Desai, D.O. </li></ul><ul><li>Physician Educator, Dept of Medical Affairs </li></ul><ul><li>Associate Professor, Dept of Family Medicine </li></ul><ul><li>Kansas City University of Medicine & Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine </li></ul>Mary P.

  2. 2. <ul><li>This presentation was made possible by Grant Number 5 R25 AT000529-03 from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the American Student Medical Association Foundation (AMSA Foundation) - its contents are solely the responsibility of the speakers and do not necessarily represent the official views of the NCCAM, the National Institutes of Health, or AMSA. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Prevalence of CAM use in the US <ul><li>Tindle, Eisenberg, et al. January/February 2005 Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine – compared CAM usage from 1997-2002 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>> 1 in 3 U.S. adults (36.5 and 35.0 %, respectively) used at least 1 form of CAM. Over the 5 yrs between the 2 most recent surveys, the total using any CAM stable at 72 million </li></ul></ul><ul><li>BUT, changes in the choice of CAM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Largest change = 50 % jump in herbal use, 12.1% - 18.6% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Yoga increased 40 %, from 3.7 % in 1997 to 5.1 % </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use of CAM therapies such as acupuncture, biofeedback, energy healing, and hypnosis remained essentially unchanged btw 1997 - 2002, while </li></ul><ul><li>use of homeopathy, high-dose vitamins, chiropractic, and massage therapy declined slightly. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Other Changes <ul><li>Only 5 % of people who used herbs saw a herbal practitioner in 2002 (vs. 15% in 1997) </li></ul><ul><li>More self-treatment, possibly based on advertising </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DSHEA </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Medicine in the latter half of the 19th Century <ul><li>Heroic Medicine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Every effort made to “preserve the life force” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stimulants if the patient drowsy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypnotics if the patient agitated </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Effort aimed at “conquering” disease </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Enough force, enough drugs would cast out the demons </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Medicine in the latter half of the 19th Century <ul><li>The “magic bullet” a drug called “606” (later renamed “salvorsan”) discovered by Paul Erlich in 1910 </li></ul><ul><li>A.T. Still was well trained in these areas and believed they did not work. </li></ul><ul><li>Searching for a more effective method of healing </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Still Approach <ul><li>If drugs didn’t work </li></ul><ul><li>If purgatives and cathartics didn’t work </li></ul><ul><li>What would work… </li></ul>
  8. 8. Osteopathic Approach <ul><li>“ To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease.” </li></ul>A.T. Still, M.D.,D.O.
  9. 9. The Four Tenets of Osteopathy <ul><li>1. Person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit. </li></ul><ul><li>2. The body is capable of self regulation, self healing, and health maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Rational treatment is based on an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function. </li></ul>

  11. 11. Evidence for use of OMT <ul><li>Andersson GBJ, Lucente T, Davis A, et al, A Comparison of Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation with Standard Care for Patients with Low Back Pain N Engl J Med .1999;341 (19): 1426-1431 </li></ul><ul><li>Standard Medical Care (n=72) vs OMT group (n=83) </li></ul><ul><li>both groups improved during 12 weeks. </li></ul><ul><li>no statistically significant difference between the two groups in any of the primary outcome measures. </li></ul><ul><li>osteopathic-treatment group required significantly less meds (analgesics, antiinflammatory agents, and muscle relaxants) (P< 0.001) and used less PT (0.2 percent vs. 2.6 percent, P<0.05). </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusions OMT and standard medical care have similar clinical results in patients with subacute low back pain. However, use of meds is greater with standard care. </li></ul>

  37. 37. Lixing Lao et al. cont… <ul><li>Results: </li></ul><ul><li>Complications included infections (hepatitis) & organ, tissue & nerve injury. Adverse effects included cutaneous disorders, hypotension, fainting & vomiting. Trend toward fewer reported serious complication after 1988. </li></ul>
  38. 38.
  39. 39. Lixing Lao et al. cont… <ul><li>Conclusions: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Declines in adverse reports may suggest that recent practices, such as clean needle techniques & more rigorous acupuncturist training requirements, have reduced the risks associated with the procedure. Therefore, acupuncture performed by trained practitioners using clean needle techniques is a generally safe procedure.” </li></ul>

  44. 44. General Considerations - LBP <ul><li># 2 reason for OV in US </li></ul><ul><li>majority do not require surgical intervention </li></ul><ul><li>massive financial burden </li></ul><ul><ul><li>cost of treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>expense of lost work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>legal costs (workman's comp, disability, personal injury) </li></ul></ul>
  45. 45. Case Intro <ul><li>David D., a 45 y.o. father of 2 children (ages 3 and 5), works as a delivery man </li></ul><ul><li>Presents with constant back pain of moderate – severe intensity, isolated to the lower lumbar spine. Also, c/o tight muscles in same region. </li></ul><ul><li>He usually does ok until he has a heavy load day, or works overtime, which seems to cause a flare in back pain. </li></ul><ul><li>No ‘red flags’ for LBP </li></ul>
  46. 46. Soft Tissue Technique – Dr. Cox <ul><li>A direct technique (engages a restrictive barrier) which involves stretching, deep pressure, traction, and/or separation of muscle origin and insertion while monitoring tissue response. </li></ul><ul><li>Lumbar Soft tissue – objective is to relax the paravertebral muscles </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat until desired effect </li></ul>
  47. 47. Lumbar Soft Tissue Technique <ul><li>Prone traction </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Stand at side of table, place cephalad hand over base of sacrum with fingers pointing toward feet, place other hand on the paravertebral muscles with fingers pointing toward head. Exert separating tractional force in directions fingers are pointing. Intermittent or sustained inhibition </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Prone pressure with counter leverage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Stand at side of table, contact pt’s opposite side, grasp musculature with cephalad hand, apply anterior and lateral force. Contact ASIS with caudad hand and apply upward force. Use kneading or deep inhibitory pressure </li></ul></ul>
  48. 48. Myofascial Release (MFR) <ul><li>Designed to stretch and release restriction of fascia and muscle </li></ul><ul><li>Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Assess and modify maladaptive patterns </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Search out tight and loose “end-feels” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic barriers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Soft tissue/bony impediment to inherent motion </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Static barriers </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Soft tissue, bony impediment to passive motion </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  49. 49. Myofascial Release <ul><li>Treatment goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Release tension </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Restore 3 dimensional patterns to functional symmetry </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Direct and indirect treatments </li></ul>
  50. 50. Myofascial Release <ul><li>Direct treatments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Define areas of tightness by holding tissue firmly into barrier of restriction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wait for tissue release (tissue creep) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Art lies in being able to follow tissue response as release begins </li></ul></ul>
  51. 51. Myofascial Release <ul><li>Indirect treatments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Move the tissue in 3 dimensions away from restrictive barrier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Subtle release of tissue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Art lies in being able to keep the tissues in a “loose” fashion while the body “unwinds” </li></ul></ul>
  52. 52. Myofascial Release <ul><li>Post treatment discomfort (rare) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Temporary increase of pain on 1st or 2nd treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Analogous to post exercise soreness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lupus and fibromyalgia patients can have repeated flare-ups </li></ul></ul></ul>
  53. 53. MFR <ul><li>Place hands on lumbar paravertebral muscles and move in all planes, assessing the motion </li></ul><ul><li>Direct </li></ul><ul><ul><li>take fascia where it does not want to go, and wait a few seconds. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Indirect </li></ul><ul><ul><li>take fascia where it likes to go, wait few seconds, and then move back to neutral as tissue relaxes </li></ul></ul>
  54. 54. Muscle Energy <ul><li>A form of OMT wherein pt’s ms. are actively used, in a specific direction and against specific counterforce from a specific position </li></ul><ul><li>A direct technique (engages the restrictive barrier and then carries the dysfunctional component into the restrictive barrier) </li></ul>
  55. 55. Basics <ul><li>Using pt’s “muscle energy” as activating force </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. counteracts pt’s force </li></ul><ul><li>Isometric = no mvmt in active phase </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ms are same length </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>achieve relaxation after contraction of ms </li></ul></ul>
  56. 56. Utility <ul><li>Mobilize joints where mvmt is restricted </li></ul><ul><li>Stretch tight muscles and fascia </li></ul><ul><li>Improve local circulation </li></ul><ul><li>Balance neuromuscular relationships to alter muscle tone </li></ul>
  57. 57. Advantages <ul><li>Safer than HVLA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>gentle technique </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>better for elderly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>also for those with osteoporosis/risks thereof </li></ul></ul>
  58. 58. Contraindications <ul><li>Open wounds </li></ul><ul><li>Broken bones </li></ul><ul><li>Uncooperative patients </li></ul><ul><li>Unresponsive patients </li></ul><ul><li>Severe pain </li></ul>
  59. 59. Goals of ME <ul><li>Strengthen weaker side of asymm. </li></ul><ul><li>Decrease hypertonicity </li></ul><ul><li>Lengthen muscle fibers </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce restriction of motion </li></ul><ul><li>Alter related resp. and circ. fxn </li></ul><ul><li>Make the patient feel better </li></ul>
  60. 60. Technique Simplified <ul><li>Position body part at point of initial resistance </li></ul><ul><li>As pt. moving part away from restriction, dr. providing equal counterforce to achieve isometric state, while monitoring pt to ensure proper position </li></ul><ul><li>Hold for about 5 seconds, and both pt and dr relax simultaneously (repeat 3-5 times or until no new barriers) </li></ul><ul><li>Recheck motion </li></ul>
  61. 61. Muscle Energy Treatment <ul><li>Restriction of hip flexion (from tight extensors) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fully flex the hip while pt supine </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask the patient to gently extend leg while the doc resists motion for 3-5 seconds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>During relaxation, move further into barrier and then repeat the process until no new barriers are reached </li></ul></ul>
  62. 62. Still Technique <ul><li>A specific, non-repetitive articulatory method that is indirect then direct, and is attributed to A.T. Still </li></ul><ul><li>Can be used to treat regional and segmental dysfunction </li></ul><ul><li>Typically a supine treatment, but if concept is applied, it can be performed from nearly any position to adapt to a specific patient </li></ul>
  63. 63. Still Technique <ul><li>Simplification </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Place dysfunctional area where it wants to go (indirect). Add a compressive or traction force and articulate it to where it doesn’t want to go, thus engaging the restrictive barrier (direct). Remove force and place pt back in neutral position. Reassess </li></ul></ul>
  64. 64. Lumbar Still Technique <ul><li>For regional dysfunction (group curve): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pt supine, stand on side of concavity (side of side bending component). Contact pt’s lumbar transverse process with cephalad index finger, supporting the muscles with palm, this is the monitoring hand. Grasp pt’s knee on same side with caudad hand and flex knee and hip until motion/relaxation felt at monitoring hand or approx 90 deg </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Then move monitoring hand to knee, and caudad hand to leg around ankle. Induce internal rotation (pull lower leg lateral) and adduction by pushing knee medially. This sidebends toward concavity and rotates away - indirect (induces tissue relaxation) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Press down with 5 # pressure on knee toward the table in direction where monitoring hand had been. Maintaining compression, carry knee through neutral and then abduction and external rotation in articulatory manner. Pt’s leg brought back to extended, neutral supine position. Reassess. </li></ul></ul>
