Musculoskeletal Conditions


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

Chapter 4 offers a much more involving experience than chapter three, with more therapeutic techniques thrown in and useful diagrams. From a sympathetic standpoint, this one was a little harder to digest. While the imagery was good, I think maybe it was a little too pronounced. If someone came to you with bow legs or bursitis protruding from their elbow through long sleeves, it’s likely you will be able to get a confession out of them. More subtle examples would be helpful, in my opinion. Even so, I feel the text descriptions and explanations are thorough enough to be able to, with a bit of imagination, identify some of the more common musculoskeletal ailments in their other forms.
