Chapter 5


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

While reading Chapter 5 in the text book I learned about Nervous pathologies. The nervous is made up of two systems, Central Nervous System (CNS) and Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). The brain and spinal cord are what make up the CNS, and all other nervous tissue is the PNS. The brain is divided into 4 parts, the brainstem, the cerebellum, the cerebrum, and the diencephalon. Some general signs and symptoms of a Nervous pathology are dizziness, tremors, loss of coordination, sharp pain in arms and legs, and loss of mental ability. Massage can help relax the muscles and reduce the pain in the arms and legs.
