Complications from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) kill more people in the United States per year than AIDS and breast cancer combined.
A client with this potentially life-threatening condition rarely knows or reports to their therapist that they have DVT. What is more likely to happen is that a client visits a massage therapist hoping he or she can "work out" the intense pain in their leg.
In this course, massage therapists will learn how to recognize the symptoms and risk factors associated with deep vein thrombosis and to distinguish a muscular problem from a much more dangerous scenario.
