Urinary System


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

While reading Chapter 10 in my text book I learned about the Urinary system. The urinary system filters and gets rid if toxins in the body. Polycystic Kidney Disorder (PKD) is a common Urinary pathology, and is the most common genetic disorder, this can cause cysts and cell death it can lead to renal failure, massage can be performed only with medical release from their health care provider. Uremia is another pathology linked to the Urinary system, it is when toxic levels of urea and other wastes are in the blood because of the kidneys inability to filter correctly, this pathology also need medical clearance for the client to receive a massage.
