What type of massage therapy should doctors refer their patients for treatments? Part 2 PDF Print E-mail

Usually when I write articles, I try to offer some practical  material, discuss different protocols and give advices in subjects related to science of massage therapy. In this article I will share my knowledge and offer practical steps on how to contact medical community, became member of a team and together contribute to well-being of general public.

As I promised at Part 1 of this article, I have spent some time reviewing the original research article: ”Massage Therapy Attenuates Inflammatory Signaling After Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage.”

In my opinion this is a great work and actually places us at a position of significance within the health care system. At the time of reading the original paper, it was obvious why editorial board of Science Translational Medicine, accepted this work for publication.

Simply speaking, they went straight to muscle biopsies genetic analysis before injury, after injury, and then after leg was massaged. This is a very simple approach in getting the answers, and at the same time, it is a very acceptable high standards for research approach.
