Pathophysiology I covers many of the common medical and dysfunctional musculoskeletal conditions that a massage therapist is likely to come into contact with during the course of a typical massage practice. It is by no means a full listing of conditions, but rather an in-depth look into the more common situations typically encountered. Being well versed in the vernacular and attributes of these various conditions ensures that the massage therapist will properly address the condition presented, as well as knowing when to refer a client out to the proper medical authority. Each section also covers local and systemic contraindications to bodywork where applicable. This will ensure that the massage therapist works within the scope of practice, thereby making sure no harm comes to the client.
Thoracic outlet syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Rotator cuff injuries
Sciatica and piriformis syndrome
Intervertebral disc problems
