Nervous System Pathology


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

Chapter 5 is an overview of the nervous system and discusses how to assess the nervous system, what medications are used to treat mood disorders, how to work with visually impaired clients, and other disease & disorders related to nervous system pathologies. This chapter shows how the different parts of the nervous system including central, peripheral, autonomic, somatic, para/sympathetic, transmits information using the neuron/nerve/brain structure system. It also covers how a massage therapist might deal with clients who are visually impaired or on nervous system medications and what kind of accommodations might be needed in the massage room if they are visually impaired.
