"Thank you Gordon! That is, in fact, the case, and it is something I have been trying to work out.  I will try something similar in our next session and see how she likes it. "

"I'm not sure if this is your case. But, if I have a client that is very sensitive to pain, I want to calm down that sensitivity as much as possible before I begin using firmer or deeper pressure. If one side of the body is in more pain then the…"

"I see I didn't write that the way I meant it.  I meant to say 45 mins for the concentration (in your case, the neck and back work), and leaving 15 mins to skim the rest of the body to make it feel like a full body session, even though it…"

"No worries! I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.  This case study is taking place within the time constraints of school's clinic setting so the 45 minute option sounds like a workable solution for me.  As part…"

"As you can see by looking at the attachments the arms as well as the lateral body can also effective the neck and the headache. Treating the area of pain may give temporary relief, but really, for any pain problem, the body needs to be looked at in…"

"With the info your provided, I think I would start with a few sessions of deep Swedish work, with long strokes and minimal spot work in the traps.   A few other questions: Would you be kind enough to let me know about how many…"

"Take a close look at the diagrams in the attachment. Can you see a connection between the lower legs and the neck? It is possible to work the area of complaint and get long lasting results. But there are connections. And often times they are very…"

"I think we are on the same train of thought, Gordon.  Fascial restrictions (as I am learning) are points in the layer of tissue surrounding our muscles and under skin etc that can decrease ROM and cause pain in the body. One study I have read…"

"I personally can't relate to fascial restrictions myself? Cant relate to the word. So? Can't answer that question. I just look for painful palpatory areas and try to make them go away, no matter if they are fascia restrictions or what."

Pain reduction for MVA victims

Hi, I am a massage therapy student and I am preparing for a case study I will be doing over the next year. My study is a survivor of two MVA's and lives in chronic pain from her injuries. My goal is simply to reduce her pain and attempt to improve her ADL's, such as sleeping. I am leaning toward incorporating fascial work into the regime, with alternating treatments. Has anyone found this successful in treating chronic pain?  Any viewpoint is appreciated, as it is all an excellent base for…See More
