Monitoring the Use of OMT for COVID-19 Patients (Updated June 4, 2020)

Check out the updated graph monitoring the use of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) for patients diagnosed with COVID-19 by DO‑Touch.NET members!

UPDATE (June 4, 2020): One member reported treating 2 COVID-19 patients with OMT during the week of May 22-28, 2020. Both these patients were treated in the hospital.

This graph illustrates the cumulative number of patients with COVID‑19 treated with OMT (circles, related to left axis) and the number of OMT sessions provided to those patients (triangles, related to left axis). The bars and the right axis show how many DO‑Touch.NET members reported each week (reporting clinicians, green bars) and how many provided OMT to COVID‑19 patients each week (treating clinicians, blue bars).

UPDATE (May 28, 2020): There were no new reports of COVID-19 patients treated with OMT by our members during the week of May 15-21, 2020.

UPDATE (May 21, 2020): After an initial surge in the number of patients with COVID‑19 who were treated with OMT, we have had only a few patients in the last 4 weeks. We hope this reflects decreased need and not decreased use of OMT.

If you are a clinician using OMT as part of your treatment for patients with COVID‑19, you can find information about joining our study at
