Blood Clots, Blood Pressure, and Heart Disease: Common Cardiovascular Conditions and Massage » Blood Clot Risk and Massage Therapy

Instructor: Tracy Walton

Blood Clot Risk and Massage Therapy

Half of all blood clots are clinically "silent," producing no symptoms. Although DVT can cause serious complications, public awareness is low, and few Americans know the factors that put them at risk. Common conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer can increase the potential for blood clots to form. In massage therapy, understanding DVT risk is just as important as knowing its symptoms.
In this course you will learn:

• Which populations are at higher risk of DVT
• Why pressure on the lower extremities might be contraindicated because of a possible silent clot
• Two simple "DVT Risk Principles" that can make your practice safer
• What to do if a client had DVT, but is now taking blood thinners
• How to get help from your client's physician

You'll leave this course with peace of mind, and skills to use with a wide range of clients.
