Musculoskeletal Pathology


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson. For the class taught by Dr. Johnson.

The information about the skeletal and muscle system in chapter 4 is helpful in determining how to massage someone with abnormalities in their bones and muscles. I have massaged an elderly man who was 90 years old in the massage intern clinic who had kyphosis. I wish I had this info on how to make him more comfortable. When I gave him his massage I was nervous and gave him a light massage because I was afraid I would hurt him or break a bone. Now I have more knowledge on how to massage a client like that.
