Researchers explore massage therapy as muscle builder

An illness, an accident, or even just getting older can limit a person's capacity for exercise. Rest is an essential component of healing, but it also atrophies muscles. Researchers from the University of Kentucky’s College of Health Sciences have been testing an inexpensive, non-invasive treatment that appears, in preliminary studies, to aid in the recovery of muscle mass and reduce muscle atrophy: massage therapy.

WEBINAR: Working with the back-pain client, with Back Mechanic author and University of Waterloo Professor Emeritus Stuart McGill

Enhancing clinical practice outcome for patient care and promoting self-care for both the patient and the health practitioner's career longevity

This one-hour webinar will describe an evidence-based process of interpreting patient history followed by “pain provocation” assessment to isolate the mechanism that causes back pain. Eliminating the pain-causing mechanism is the first step. Exercise prescription is the second step, based on the assessment, and involves a blend of strategic mobility and stability. These variables together with movement patterns assist in winding down pain sensitivity. Then, the program shifts to build the foundation for a pain-free body using the “knowledge of mechanism”.

This lecture will equip RMTs and Chiropractors with evidence-based knowledge to better assist the back pain client. Given the number of clinicians I see as patients, the information will also be helpful to extend their working careers.

About the Speaker: Stuart McGill is a “University Professor Emeritus” of spine biomechanics, University of Waterloo. His advice is often sought by governments, corporations, legal experts and elite athletes and teams from around the world. Difficult back cases are regularly referred to him for consultation.
