Urinary System Pathologies Chapter 12


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

The Kidney disorders in this chapter Kidney stones, Renal Failure, Polycystic Kidney disease to name a few were very informative. I know a few people that have had some of these pathologies. I enjoyed learning about the Renal Dialysis. I was never sure how that really worked and now I know. It sure takes up a good part of your day for the dialysis’s process. Amazing how the medical field has figured out all these amazing techniques they can do to improve and save people’s lives. The case study on in this chapter, I think I would tell the wife whose husband is on dialysis and she wants him to get a massage I would tell her that I would like to check up on my notes about Dialysis before giving her an answer and if I decided I was not comfortable giving him a massage I would refer her to someone that works with Dialysis patients. I would most likely contact a hospital or dialysis center and ask them to refer me to someone they might be able to recommend.
