Musculoskeletal System Pathology


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

In musculoskeletal pathologies I learned a list of pathologies which consisted of skeletal disorders such as osteoporosis and bone cancers both of which one needs to know as much as possible before working on a client so as to be safe and keep it beneficial for the client. Spinal deviations such a scoliosis are somewhat common and knowing how to massage around the bones so the client can get relief and not feel in pain where also discussed and I feel more confident massaging. My textbook also talked about foot deformities and myofascial disorders so I feel confident knowing myofascial moves to specifically use on my clients.
