Chemotherapeutic agents, such as vincristine, are well known antineoplastic and cytotoxic drugs, affecting patients broadly during treatment of cancer. Well known side effects, such as constipation and neuropathic pain, affect the quality of life of these patients recovering from cancer as well as its treatment. An option that alleviates troublesome side effects while still allowing the treatment to work would assist patients with wellbeing and comfort. Osteopathic manipulative treatments (OMT) are often utilized for various ailments in both pediatric and adult populations. A previous pilot study investigated the safety and feasibility of OMT in pediatric oncology patients and reported no serious adverse events attributed to OMT intervention. We hypothesized that OMT intervention during cancer therapy will improve constipation and neuropathic pain for children with leukemia undergoing chemotherapy.
