Reproductive system pathologies, conditions and Sexually Transmitted Infections Chapter 13


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

Reproductive pathologies: there were a lot of pathologies in this chapter, Prostate, & Female reproductive system which was very interesting to me because I am female. The pregnancy and pregnancy pathologies were good to be educated on to name a few, Ectopic pregnancy, Placenta Abruption, and preeclampsia. It is always good to be up to date on the sexually transmitted Infections as well. They are Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, syphilis, Genital Herpes, hepatitis B to name a few of the infections. I just took a pregnancy massage class and now see how it can benefit someone that has a pathology that is unable to lie on their back or be in the supine position. The side laying position is very comfortable. I now see why in the previous chapters they have recommended that position for many of the pathologies. I enjoyed the section on pregnancy and pathologies related to pregnancy. Hopefully I won’t run across many women who encounter these pathologies and if I do hopefully I can help them fell less stressed about what they have gone through.
