Endocrine

by

Why should the therapist ask clients who are adolescent or premenopausal women whether their menstrual cycles are regular? The therapist should ask because problems associated with the reproductive system can be linked to the endocrine system. How could a client’s use of insulin affect how the therapist performs massage on that client? Insulin injections sites should be avoided for at least 10 days, and the therapist should be prepared to respond if the client enters insulin shock. Also, the therapist should be prepared to assist clients who feel light-headed when getting up from the massage table. If clearance is obtained from the client’s health care provider, what massage techniques can be useful for clients with acromegaly? Clients with acromegaly can experience a great deal of pain due to the stress of larger, heavier bone structures on the client’s joints. Therefore, the therapist should use gentle gliding strokes and kneading to decrease pain and provide relaxation. Joint mobilizations might be contraindicated because they could damage the already stressed joints. If clearance has been obtained from the client’s health care provider, what massage techniques can be useful for clients with Addison’s disease? If the client is debilitated, a shorter and gentler massage is indicated. Otherwise, the massage should be tailored to the client’s current state. If clearance has been obtained from the client’s health care provider, what are the massage considerations for clients with cretinism? A gentle, relaxing massage should be performed, and the neck/throat region should be avoided. If clearance has been obtained from the client’s health care provider, what are the massage considerations for clients with Cushing’s disease? A relaxing massage with gentle pressure is indicated to prevent bruising. What are the massage considerations for clients with diabetes insipidus? Clients suffering from diabetes insipidus should always have their medication available during massage treatments and can benefit from either a gentle or more vigorous massage, depending on the vitality of the client. Water can be offered if the client is not well hydrated. Because massage can increase local blood flow, the insulin can enter the blood more rapidly than it should and cause a low blood sugar reaction. What are some other important massage considerations for clients with diabetes mellitus? Vigorous massage, especially percussion and vibration, must be carefully administered since they can damage already compromised blood vessels. Also, it is important for the client to have any necessary medications (e.g., insulin) available in case of a diabetes-related emergency such as a diabetic coma or insulin shock. General massage can be performed on clients with Graves’ disease, and should be tailored to the client’s vitality. If clearance has been obtained from the client’s health care provider, what are the massage considerations for clients with hyperparathyroidism? Gentle gliding strokes and gentle kneading can help reduce muscle tension. Joint mobilizations and stretches should be avoided. If clearance has been obtained from the client’s health care provider, what are the massage considerations for clients with hyperpituitarism? The goals of massage therapy for clients with hyperpituitarism are to decrease pain and provide as much relaxation as possible. Kneading or gentle gliding strokes are generally helpful to those with hyperpituitarism. Joint mobilizations might be contraindicated because of the potential damage to joints that are already stressed due to the larger and heavier bone structure. If clearance has been obtained, gentle massage can help relieve anxiety and reduce fatigue. When massaging the throat area, the therapist should perform a tissue release. Manual traction of the cervical vertebrae and light nerve strokes can also be helpful. It is important for massage therapists to recognize and distinguish between these two conditions so that clients can receive the appropriate treatment as quickly as possible. â— What symptom, if any, do these two conditions share? Abdominal pain is a symptom for both of these conditions. If clearance has been obtained, what are the massage considerations for clients with hypoparathyroidism? The therapist should ask the client whether there is muscle tension, and, if so, in which muscles. Gliding strokes and kneading can help relieve muscle pain. Gentle pressure should be used over any body parts that are tingling. Joint mobilizations and stretching can help the client maintain flexibility, and lubricants can help alleviate dry skin. Light-headedness is common, so the therapist should be ready to assist the client in getting up. When performing massage on clients with hypopituitarism, therapists should be aware that the client might chill easily or experience light-headedness when getting up from the massage table. When performing massage on clients with hypopituitarism, therapists should perform a tissue release when massaging the throat area. Manual traction of the cervical vertebrae and light nerve strokes are also often helpful. Seasonal affective disorder is common in areas such as Alaska, where, during the winter months, people may only get as little as five to six hours of daylight per day, and most of those short daylight hours consist of cloudy, overcast skies. The majority of the winter days in these regions are spent in night darkness.
