Neurological Pathologies


While there is really no such thing as an unimportant factor to consider when deciding how to go about a massage therapy session, neurological factors are some of the more important factors to consider. One neurological disorder that is beginning to see more treatment by massage therapists is Cerebral Palsy. Often present at, during, or just after birth, Cerebral Palsy affects many children and has no cure. Through massage therapy, however, people with Cerebral Palsy can experience lower occurrences of spasticity due to the calming effects of massage therapy and can also experience greater flexibility and range of motion as well as even having more positive social interactions after several successful massage therapy sessions. It is important to note, however, that the massage therapists have to be extremely careful if and when they attempt to stretch a client with Cerebral Palsy due to the compromised bone density associated with Cerebral Palsy. Many massage therapists also find it beneficial to the patient to teach a family member or primary care giver some techniques that could help to calm a person with Cerebral Palsy in order to provide the best care for the client and to make the client as comfortable as possible when situations of severe pain or discomfort arise.

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
