Cerritelli F, Ginevri L, Messi G, et al. Clinical effectiveness of osteopathic treatment in chronic migraine: 3-armed randomized controlled trial [published online January 21, 2015]. Complement Ther Med. 2015;23(2):149-156. doi:10.1016/j.ctim.2015.01.011. 
In 2011, The Somatic Connection reported on a German clinical trial using osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMTh; manipulative care provided by foreign-trained osteopaths) for patients with migraines.1 At the time the study was published, researchers recommended several possible next steps, including adding a sham intervention group and increasing the cohort size. This year, foreign-trained osteopaths who graduated from the Accademia Italiana Osteopatia Tradizionale in Pescara, Italy, in collaboration with local hospitals in Italy, reported on the largest randomized controlled trial of OMTh or sham therapy to treat patients with chronic migraines.
