Clinical Audit reporting on outcomes of a Tension Myoneural Syndrome (TMS) Programme in a physiotherapy practice

Georgie Oldfield 2009


A small scale retrospective case study was conducted in the UK by physiotherapist Georgie Oldfield, surveying 24 of her patients treated between November 2007 and January 2008. Lower back pain, migraines and sciatica were the most common complaints, with the average length of symptoms over 3 years. The patients were surveyed in June 2008 and again in June 2009. Twenty of the patients reported an 80-100% improvement in June 2008, and although only twenty could be contacted in June 2009, 18 had maintained their progress or improved. As Georgie Oldfield says “Although not hard evidence and with relatively few patients, the results of this audit support Dr. Sarno's theory that the increasing epidemic of chronic pain may well be an emotionally induced phenomenon.” (Source)
