Use of osteopathic manipulative treatment

to manage recurrent bouts of singultus

The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association

In this case report, the authors recount their care of a 32-year-old woman with stiff person syndrome and concurrent aminoacidopathy who experienced daily bouts of singultus, or hiccups, ranging from 20 minutes to five hours. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) at the onset of spasm resulted in immediate cessation of and further suppression of singultus for 12 to 24 hours. Overall, there was a noted reduction in singultus frequency, duration and intensity, as well as better tolerance of physical and occupational therapy. (This is an abstract.
