Abstract
Objective: To review articles concerning the effectiveness of Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment (OMT) intervention on various types of headache disorders. Methods: Literature was gathered through PubMed and Google Scholar and assessed for the effectiveness of OMT interventions on headache disorder symptoms. The interventions include OMT, and Spinal Manipulation (SMT), a branch of OMT. Results: The majority of the literature supported the use of OMT for reducing the prevalence and intensity of multiple headache disorders. Conclusion: OMT interventions show promising results for patients who struggle with headache disorders, in terms of increasing quality of life, and reducing the amount of time with pain.
