Disease awareness


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

Disease awareness is definitely a topic massage therapists need to be on top of. This chapter has helped me become more knowledgeable in the terms related to pathology, the study of diseases. I have become more efficient in identifying the risk factors of these diseases as well as being able to name the various agents of these diseases. Some of these diseases I have known previously because they are considered more dangerous but I feel more confident knowing as much as possible so just in case I do get a client with something rare there is a chance i can catch it before becoming hands on with my client. Knowing these terms and definitions as well as what these diseases look like makes me a more responsible massage therapist for the client and my safety.
