AMTA Tutorial Video: Shoulder Dysfunction

As massage therapists, Dr. George Russell says, you are uniquely suited to assist clients suffering from shoulder injuries. “A massage therapist spends more time with clients, develops more trust with them and often has better manual skills than any neuromusculoskeletal practitioner,” he says. “I want to teach massage therapists to do everything I know that’s in their scope of practice—and one of the few things that leaves out is high-speed adjustments. A massage therapist can effectively address a wide range of shoulder problems.” Continue reading about George's approach to massage therapy for shoulder dysfunction in Massage Therapy Journal.

Watch as Dr. Russell, a past AMTA National Convention speaker,  provides a demonstration on how massage therapists can help shoulder dysfunction.
