American College of Physicians Recommends Massage for Low Back Pain

Apr 12, 2017 8:00:00 AM by MTTI
Low back pain a problem? Doctors now say: Before you reach for the Advil, consider massage therapy. Back pain is one of the most common injuries suffered by Americans. Sometimes referred to as " throwing your back out," an acute but temporary flare-up of pain in the low back is the second most common neurological ailment and the most common cause of job-related disability. Historically, doctors have recommended that patients take over-the-counter (and sometimes prescription) pain medication to treat this condition. However, new guidelines from the American College of Physicians encourage back pain sufferers to try complementary and alternative medicine including yoga, acupuncture, and massage therapy to reduce their pain.

What is a Medical Massage Curriculum - and why is it important to you?

Jan 23, 2016 9:00:00 AM by MTTI

Medical massage is defined by Massage Today Magazine as massage that “is performed with the intent of improving conditions or pathologies that have been diagnosed by a physician; a wide variety of modalities or procedures are utilized to focus the treatment based on the diagnosed condition."

In other words, medical massage is the usage of massage to treat a medical condition. At a medical massage school, the student is viewed as a true health care professional, and the curriculum is rigorous and medically-based. The Anatomy and Physiology classes are comparable to medical school level courses, and often there is a strong focus on treating injuries. Ideally there will be focus on injury treatment in the hands-on Clinical portion of the program as well, such as MTTI’s Externship treating real injuries on athletes at New Mexico State University.
