Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment as a Useful Adjunctive Tool for Pneumonia Sheldon Yao1, John Hassani1, Martin Gagne1, Gebe George1, Wolfgang Gilliar1 1Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine Pneumonia is one of the top ten leading causes of death in the U.S. Osteopathic manipulative techniques (OMT) may be utilized as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of pneumonia to enhance biomechanical and immune function; and ultimately, to reduce hospital stay, duration of antibiotics, incidence of respiratory failure, and mortality. In this video-article, we will review randomized controlled studies on the use of OMT in pneumonia patients, as well as demonstrate specific hands-on techniques that are routinely practiced by osteopathic physicians when treating pulmonary infections.
