Urinary Pathologies


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

Urinary infections and disorders, like the last chapter, will more be about the side effects accompanying them. Edemas are a common side effect for many of the urinary diseases, such as Nephritic syndrome and Glomerulonephritis. These areas of the body need to remain elevated and pressure should be avoided. Frequent urination is also a common side effect of diseases such as Pyelonephritis and Polycistic Kidney Disease. This side effect, like with Celiac Disease mentioned in my last discussion, could cause the patient to need frequent bathroom breaks and make for an overall shorter session. Kidney Failure is also something I should be aware of, because patients with Chronic Renal Failure can often feel weak and fatigued and can sometimes experiences seizures.
