Rationale: 

Soft tissue injuries, chronic pain and other musculoskeletal (MSK) related disorders top the list of healthcare expenditures. Overuse, inactivity, previous injuries and aging all potentially contribute to the development of muscle pain.  Soft tissue massage and stretching offers a non-drug intervention that is within the scope of nursing practice.

 Objectives:

  • Become familiar with the benefits of and contraindications for common styles of massage therapy.
  • Be able to demonstrate basic massage techniques to promote relaxation and improve range of motion that can be utilized in nursing practice.
  • State the difference between static stretching and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) and be able to demonstrate at least 2 AIS movements to increase ROM in the lower extremities.
  • Explain how MCE (Movement/Compression/Elevation) may be superior to RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
  • Discuss the physiology of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
