Osteopathic manipulative treatment and nutrition: An alternative approach to the irritable bowel syndrome  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Rita Lombardini
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.56A2013
Abstract:

A simple treatment plan for manual therapists is presented based on current evidence-based literature, it is designed to lessen chronic pain and inflammation in the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). A chronic continuous or intermittent gastrointestinal tract dysfunction, IBS appears due to dysregulation of brain-gut-microbe communication. An overview of its management using Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is described. In IBS OMT focuses on the nervous and circulatory systems, spine, viscera, thoracic and pelvic diaphragms in order to restore homeostatic balance, normalize autonomic activity in the intestine, promote lymphatic flow and address somatic dysfunction. Lymphatic and venous congestion is treated by the Lymphatic Pump Techniques and stimulation of Chapman’s Reflex Points. The food itself, food allergies and intolerance could contribute to symptom onset or even cause IBS. Furthermore the “microbiota” greatly impacts on the bi-directional brain-gut axis communication. This paper also provides appropriate dietary modifications for patients with IBS.

Regional Interdependence: A Model That Needs to Be Integrated in the Functional Evaluation and Physiotherapy Treatment—Part 1  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Rita Lombardini, Giovanna Censi
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2016.43010
Abstract: Background: Rehabilitation is increasing the need to use codes in order to make both a functional diagnosis and a therapeutic intervention as correct and targeted as possible. Thus, it is very important to integrate the model of Regional Interdependence (RI) in the classical rehabilitation evaluation methods, since it will be of help for understanding, solving dysfunctional problems, and improving the patient management, which is often difficult given the fact that there is no concordance on functional tests and timing of treatments. The RI should be added to the functional evaluation each time that a patient presents symptoms in a specific location, which interest also distal regions. This is due to the functional and anatomical connections of the myofascial system, vascular, autonomic nervous system (ANS), the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the neuro-immunoendocrine system. The RI can be summarized into three groups that are correlated when it comes to applying it practically: upper, bottom and front quadrant. Adding the concept of RI to the clinical and therapeutically practice, it would have positive effects on improving the quality of life and allocate better health’s resources. The aim of this paper is to make the functional assessment in clinical practice faster and more standardized.
Regional Interdependence: A Practical Guidance in Rehabilitation Clinic—Part 2  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Rita Lombardini, Giovanna Censi
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2017.51002
Abstract: Background: This work has the purpose of describing a well standardized therapeutic path in reference to the article “Regional Interdependence: A model that needs to be integrated in the functional evaluation and Physiotherapy treatmentPart. 1,(doi.org/10.4236/ojtr.2016.43010)” in the form of practical guidance in reference to Figure A1. The approach we describe provides standardized techniques for each joint regional quadrant in order to be used in rehabilitation clinic. Therapeutic techniques will also be classified according to the type of maneuver as classified in the literature.


The Use of Ultrasound Images in Manual Therapy and Additionally in Assessment of Shoulder Impingement Syndrome  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Rita Lombardini, Giovanna Censi
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2017.52006
Abstract: The use of the ultrasound imaging (USI) in physiotherapy is becoming increasingly common but is highly operator dependent and there are safe and professional issues regarding its practical use. Currently there are no specific training guidelines relating to physiotherapists using USI. The use of ultrasound technology for medical applications began in the 1950s and has proven to be an effective, safe, non-invasive, and relatively inexpensive tool for assessing morphologic characteristics and structural integrity of visceral organs and soft tissues. The use of ultrasound to assess muscle morphology and guide rehabilitation decision-making in physical therapy practice can be traced back to the late 1960s and has been found to be reliable and valid for specific muscles during particular movements. Over the last decade there has been rapid development of this technique with increased use both by clinicians and researchers. This method is defined in literature with the denomination of Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI). In this work we will see how RUSI could be of help in the evaluation of shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS).
An Alternative Approach to the Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: Manual Techniques and Nutrition  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Rita Lombardini, Giovanna Censi
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2017.53009
Abstract: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disorder that affects a growing number of people in the world and is one of the most common gastric complaints that prompts an individual to consult a doctor. Heartburn and regurgitation are the most predominant esophageal symptoms of GERD, but patients with the disease may also have extra esophageal symptoms, such as epigastric pain, bronchospasm, and chronic cough. All of these symptoms may compromise health-related quality of life with modification of eating habits and sleep pattern that have a great impact on the normal daily. Furthermore, GERD is a multifactorial disease that can be complicated and difficult to treat. Mechanical, chemical, physiopathologic, and functional factors that predispose patients to the disease are still under investigation. A simple treatment plan for manual therapists is presented based on current evidence-based literature; it is designed to reduce symptoms of GERD through somatovisceral approach and the nutrition.
Lumbar Stenosis of the Aging Spine: Evaluation and Treatment According to the Evidence Based Medicine for the Improvement of the Quality of Life  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Luca Palmieri, Giovanna Censi, Rita Lombardini
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2017.51004
Abstract: The lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a syndrome with a wide economic and social impact on the adult population. It is a particular form of narrowing of the lumbar vertebral canal or the intervertebral foramina which can compress the neural and vascular elements in the lumbar spine. It is a degenerative process which predominantly affects the geriatric population. The increase of the life expectancy has increased the health needs of this target of population. The (LSS) is a syndrome that can manifest itself with lower back pain and pain to the inferior limbs, and functional disabilities which affects mobility and motor skills. Given the complexity of the clinical presentation, an accurate clinical-functional evaluation is needed that includes: The combination of clinical signs from the patient’s history, a physical evaluation and diagnostic imaging, excluding possible red flags. In this respect, the use of Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) might be useful in the evaluation and treatment process, enhancing the effectiveness and documenting the benefits of it. The aim of this work is to propose an integrated evidence-based approach that may be useful for improving the quality of life of LSS patients.
Osteopathy and Emergency: A Model of Osteopathic Treatment Aimed at Managing the Post-Traumatic Stress—Part 1  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Simone Fabri, Antonio Furfaro, Ilaria Tanini, Rita Lombardini, Andrea Rizza, Paolo Zavarella
Health (Health) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/health.2018.107074
Abstract: The Complementary and Alternative Medicine Education (EDUCAM) School of Osteopathy, following the earthquake that occurred in Amatrice-Italy on August 24th 2016, promoted the project “Una mano per la salute” [One hand for health], aimed at giving therapeutic support to the population affected by this cataclysm. A review of the literature in the osteopathic field has been performed to identify a more functional approach to quickly relieve the inhabitants from the shock they suffered, and to identify the techniques with greater effectiveness on the stress axis. The protocol of ten chosen techniques will then be verified later in a pilot study, to check whether and how a protocol of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) might play a clinically relevant role in the management of subjects exposed to extraordinary exogenous stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) prevention, in addition to the psychological therapy treatments in use today.
Osteopathy and Emergency: A Model of Osteopathic Treatment Aimed at Managing the Post-Traumatic Stress—Brief and Useful Guide—Part 2  [PDF]
Luca Collebrusco, Simone Fabri, Antonio Furfaro, Ilaria Tanini, Rita Lombardini, Andrea Rizza, Paolo Zavarella
Health (Health) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/health.2018.1011120
Abstract: This work aims to describe a well standardized therapeutic path in reference to the article “Osteopathy and Emergency: A Model of Osteopathic Treatment Aimed at Managing the Post-Traumatic Stress—Part 1 in the form of a practical guide for manual therapist, Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, Vol. 10, No. 7, July 2018, https://doi.org/10.4236/health.2018.107074”. The osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) approach we propose can be complementary to the psychological therapy in use today, and consists of ten standardized techniques directed to the anatomical structures more involved in the stress answer. This protocol was designed to improve and sustain the management of subjects exposed to extraordinary exogenous stress or post-traumatic stress disorder patients (PTSD).
