Re: Massage therapy

While no two massage therapy training courses are identical, typical instruction entails basic studies in anatomy, physiology, pathology and kinesiology - where it goes from there is entirely dependent upon the healing arts school in which one enrolls. For example, if you would like a foundational course in bodywork, then common techniques taught in most massage therapy training programs encompass Swedish massage, sports massage and deep tissue massage. However, if you would like to take more advanced massage therapy training, then a large number of alternative health schools may provide in-depth, practical training a wider assortment of massage modalities.Allison Eaton is offering Massage therapy and Reiki Training with the experience of years in the field of Reiki and Yoga.

Re: Massage therapy

cilla:
I have had 3 professional people recommend massage (all female incidentally). But the hand surgeon says it is not good. Then one of the 3 women- a physiotherapist- said best to stick with what the surgeon/consultant recommends.

Hi Cilla

its common to use massage in the rehab after the surgeon has operated, why not see if you can avoid surgery by trying massage therapy BEFORE surgery.
Here is some research supporting massage in combination with night splinting, ask your Physio friend to take a look.

Thinking of vibration.....I wish I did not have to use a sonic toothbrush for at least 2 minutes a day, because of past gum problems.

Re: Massage therapy

Yes that is true, in general massage is only being offered to help with rehabilitation, eg AFTER surgery.

If you have nodules or very minor contraction try it BEFORE surgery.

To my knowledge there is only one piece of research http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21965179

Re: Massage therapy

After RT by Prof S in Hamburg in 2011, I did the follow up RT in Calgary Canada. Both the Radiologist and then a plastic surgeon felt that the nodules and cord were soft and not impacting the increasing contracture of the PIP was upto 45%. I'm now seeing a hand therapist (cost covered by our Heath Care system) for progressive night splinting, massage and muscle strengthening. The outlook is promising

Re: Massage therapy

a follow up to my Jan 31st post

I underwent RT in Hamburg and then the followup in Calgary. The Clgy radiologist felt (literally) that the cord causing the contracture was gone even though I had a 45 degree permanent bend in my 5th PIP (R baby finger)

She sent me to a plastic surgeon who confirmed that the Dupuytrens was gone. He referred me to a hand therapist. This is all covered by Alberta Health and they have a clinic dedicated to hand work here in Clgy

She made up a splint to wear at nite, did massage, ultra sound and strength / flexibility exercises. I've been at this since mid Jan and am at almost zero contracture. We think it will be zero in the not distant future. Takes time for the tendons to adjust to this new (well original) reality.
