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.
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 https://is.gd/omt_covid19_optin.
