Neurologic Pathologies


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Chapter 6 Neurologic pathologies chapter has a great list of pathologies, central nervous system disorders, infectious diseases, neurodegenerative diseases just to name a few. I like the way each chapter in the book has every topic listed at the beginning of the chapters. It makes it very easy to find the different pathologies. Easy to find when your client may tell you they have one of these pathologies. You can look it up fast and review the signs and symptoms, treatment and massage considerations. I really like the activities at the end of the chapters. The Musculoskeletal pathologies has a great memorization game you can play it has been a great help for me to retain what I am learning. I also like the diagram coloring, Fantastic! I now know exactly what some of the pathologies are and how they should be treated. One very important thing to remember always is "Proceed very carefully with full communication between you and your client, maybe with some of these pathologies postponing massage treatment is what is needed."
