Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment May Benefit PatientsDepression
October 8, 2001
With 5% of the U.S. population defined as clinically depressed and 2% to 3% of these individuals being hospitalized or seriously afflicted with depression, this disease has become the most prevalent psychiatric disorder. Women are twice as likely to experience depression than men.
Researchers from Midwestern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine in Downers Grove, Illinois, assessed the impact of OMT as an adjunct to standard psychiatric treatment on 17 participants over an eight-week period. Eight of the patients received OMT along with standard treatments while the remaining nine women received conventional treatments only. Participants were given physical examinations and instructed to refrain from taking any medications during the study.
The study results were published in the September 2001 issue of the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. According to J.J. Rodos, DO, one of the study's coauthors and a professor in the department of psychiatry at Midwestern University, the mental status of each patient was measured using scores generated on the Zung Depression Scale. The Zung scale was administered at the beginning, midpoint, and conclusion of the study.
Patients in the treatment group and the control group received the standard psychiatric treatment, which consisted of taking the antidepressant paroxetine (Paxil) and participating in a 30-minute weekly psychiatric therapy session. In addition, patients in both groups underwent structural exams at three points during the study - the beginning, the middle, and the end. The OMT provided to the treatment group was incorporated into these patient sessions, which lasted 30 minutes. The treatment group received several types of OMT including: counterstrain, myofacial treatment, and Galbreath treatment.
Results indicate that both groups showed significant improvement in their Zung Scale scores when compared with the scores taken at the beginning of the study. More specifically, by the end of the study, all of the patients receiving OMT returned to the normal range of the Zung Scale. For the control group, more than 70% of these patients still had signs of moderate depression by the end of the study.
"Because of the study's small sample size, it is too early to make definite conclusions regarding the effectiveness of OMT for relieving depression," explained Rodos. "However, our research can provide a basis for further review of OMT in treating this disease."
