After a medical study of 7 semesters, I decided to become an osteopath. I studied Osteopathic Medicine in Germany and Austria and graduated with a Master of Science.
Osteopathy has enriched my view of the human body. I like integrating anatomy, physiology, science, and humanity according to the principles of osteopathic philosophy in my patient´s work.
Meanwhile, I am a partner of Professor Fuhrmann & Kollegen in a practice of Osteopathic Medicine in Wiesbaden and for more than 7 years a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Fresenius in Idstein. In addition, I have published several articles on osteopathy, which has given me a lot of pleasure and steadily enriches my scientific work.
Consequently, I am convinced that the development of osteopathy must and can also be measured by its scientific relevance. This is only possible through numerous studies. Many osteopathic studies have a low number of subjects and should not be used. Therefore the cooperation with DO-TOUCH.NET is an important link. Only with numerous international studies can we forward osteopathic medicine. Through international participation and fantastic collaboration, the general criteria of osteopathy can be illustrated.
I am grateful to be part of this great study project and that´s why I´m supporting DO-TOUCH.NET with a lot of commitment. I am looking forward to the results and new scientific experiences.
I am Jane Johnson, MA, the Associate Director of DO-Touch.NET and a Research Assistant Professor with the A.T. Still Research Institute. As a statistician who is passionate about osteopathic manipulation, I spend my time on designing, analyzing, and publishing research about OMT.
