Objective: The purpose of this article is to propose a tool to assist with clinical reasoning to select and integrate different osteopathic models and evidence-based actions into clinical practice.
Discussion: The authors adopted the guidelines for writing a commentary as a reporting framework for the present article. The proposed Osteopathic Models Integration Radar Plot has potential for integration into clinical practice and the educational environment. This framework may enable clinicians to manage complex clinical phenomena, such as musculoskeletal disorders related to allostatic load.
Conclusion: This proposed framework may be helpful to communicate the outcome of osteopathic evaluations to other healthcare professionals. This proposed model will need to be tested to determine feasibility.
