This article, by Whitney Lowe in latest edition of ABMP’s Massage and Bodywork was refreshing! It was that because he talked of a therapist listening (not just assuming) to patients’ complaints of low back and/or nerve symptoms. The human body has A LOT of nerves, and they are EVERYWHERE. A therapist should not only think of the big, obvious nerves. He talked of intervertebral disc pathology that usually causes nerve maladies. I was most excited that he reminded that a therapist should perhaps think that deep (and direction of) pressure will be detrimental to a patient with disc and nerve low back complaints!
