The present study investigated the effectiveness of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) on symptoms of Parkinson Disease (PD). Specifically, the question of whether improvements in symptoms measured by overall score on the Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) and Quality of Life Inventory (PDQ-39) were addressed using a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled design. Results elucidate the role of OMT in the treatment of symptoms of PD and contribute to the literature base on OMT. Implications for the management of other chronic degenerative diseases are discussed.
