Mosby's Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition
Special Offer

ISBN: 9780323055888
Publisher: Churchill Livingstone
Binding: Hardcover

by Susan G. Salvo

Salvo’s Pathology presents more than just a parade of diseases. It takes the reader through health assessment and client consultation, covers sanitation and hygiene, refreshes on physiology pertinent to the pathology and pathophysiology covered in the text, and talks about general contraindications and endangerment sites before moving into the pathologies themselves. More than 300 pathologic conditions are covered in chapters divided by system. An entire chapter on Cancer and another on Mental and Emotional Illness are new additions to this edition. Each pathology presents the following information: Description, Signs and Symptoms, Etiology, Treatment, and Precautions. Pathologies are also accompanied by full color illustrations and photos plus a traffic light icon indicating whether it is safe to proceed with massage (green), there are cautions (yellow), or the massage is contraindicated (red). Local contraindications are distinguished with an "L,” to indicate massage is unsafe only in certain areas and the therapist can proceed with the massage for the rest of the body. Helpful appendices and a glossary round out the book.
