How do diseases and disorders affect the design of massage treatment plans? What precautions are needed? When is massage contraindicated? Develop the knowledge you need to evaluate a client based on how diseases and disorders affect the systems of the body and the critical-thinking skills to apply that knowledge in practice.

Clients are concerned about how a disorder affects their quality of life and ability to function. My goal for this book is to guide readers to use clinical reasoning to create client-specific, outcome-based massage treatment plans from this vital information--signs, symptoms, diagnosis, and client functional concerns."--Virginia S.
