    Ceritelli FrancescoFrom Obstetrics to Geriatrics: Insights from a Research History in Osteopathy 

    Francesco Cerritelli, D.O., Professor of Cranial and Sacrum Techniques, ICOM, International College of Osteopathic Medicine, Milan, Italy  |  View C.V. (PDF)

    Research in osteopathy has been steadily rising during the last decade making quality of studies and results constantly more reliable. Different medical fields and age groups were selected to scientifically prove the clinical validity of osteopathic procedures. Upon that, few medical conditions have been demonstrated to clearly benefit of osteopathic treatment. Many others started to shed light on the possible role of osteopathy. The aim of this lecture is to provide a review of osteopathic research literature, critically evaluating studies published in all age groups and medical fields. Another objective is to create the basis to open profitable discussion and plan future projects considering the role of osteopathy in public health.
