Orthopaedic Assessment as Palpating Living Anatomy

Learning to assess all the joints of the body, including the spine and pelvis is simply learning “living anatomy”. Truly comprehensive assessment skills enables Massage Therapists to use the knowledge base they learned at school. Through enhanced assessment skills they learn how to apply all that anatomy and pathology into actually seeing how the body functions and how it becomes dysfunctional. To do this the therapist has to both see the state of individual joints and tissues, while also seeing how all of these are working together as a whole.
