Osteopathic interventions via telehealth in a pediatric population: a retrospective case series

Joanna L. Kramer, DO, MPH; and Kathleen De Asis, DO, MS
Healthcare delivery was dramatically affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many outpatient visits were cancelled or forgone for fear of exposure to the virus, allowing telemedicine to take on a much larger role in healthcare. The delivery of manual therapies, such as osteopathic manipulative treatment, via telehealth posed a unique challenge as these are typically provided in-person by a trained osteopathic physician. This study provides a description of one osteopathic pediatrician’s experience in delivering osteopathic interventions to pediatric patients via telehealth.
