45. Responsiveness of Myofascial Trigger Points to Single and Multiple Trigger Point Release Massages: A Randomized, Placebo Controlled Trial. (Full text)

Responsiveness of Myofascial Trigger Points to Single and Multiple Trigger Point Release Massages: A Randomized, Placebo Controlled Trial. This study aimed to assess the effects of single and multiple massage treatments on pressure-pain threshold (PPT) at myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) in people with myofascial pain syndrome expressed as tension-type headache.Individuals (n = 62) with episodic or chronic tension-type headache were randomized to receive 12 twice-weekly 45-min massage or sham (...) ultrasound sessions or wait-list control. Massage focused on trigger point release (ischemic compression) of MTrPs in the bilateral upper trapezius and suboccipital muscles. PPT was measured at MTrPs with a pressure algometer pre and post the first and final (12th) treatments.PPT increased across the study timeframe in all four muscle sites tested for massage, but not sham ultrasound or wait-list groups (P < 0.0001 for suboccipital; P < 0.004 for upper trapezius).

48. Uterine massage for preventing postpartum haemorrhage. (Abstract)

Uterine massage for preventing postpartum haemorrhage. Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) (bleeding from the genital tract after childbirth) is a major cause of maternal mortality and disability, particularly in under-resourced areas. In these settings, uterotonics are often not accessible. There is a need for simple, inexpensive techniques which can be applied in low-resourced settings to prevent and treat PPH. Uterine massage is recommended as part of the routine active management of the third (...) stage of labour. However, it is not known whether it is effective. If shown to be effective, uterine massage would represent a simple intervention with the potential to have a major effect on PPH and maternal mortality in under-resourced settings.To determine the effectiveness of uterine massage after birth and before or after delivery of the placenta, or both, to reduce postpartum blood loss and associated morbidity and mortality.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials

49. Massage Chair Sessions: Favorable Effects on Ambulatory Cancer Center Nurses' Perceived Level of Stress, Blood Pressure, and Heart Rate. (Abstract)

Massage Chair Sessions: Favorable Effects on Ambulatory Cancer Center Nurses' Perceived Level of Stress, Blood Pressure, and Heart Rate. High stress levels over time can contribute to compassion fatigue and burnout and negatively affect individual health and well-being.A pre-/post-test initiative was implemented to determine the effects of massage chair sessions on ambulatory cancer center nurses (RNs and advanced practice providers) based on their perceived stress, blood pressure (BP (...) ), and heart rate (HR).A mechanical massage chair was available for 20-minute sessions in a secure room, and nurses self-recorded perceived stress using a visual analog scale, as well as BP and HR using a wrist cuff device. Descriptive statistics and paired t tests were used to assess nurse characteristics and differences before and after massage chair sessions.Nurses participated in 200 massage chair sessions during a six-month period. Significant reductions were noted in perceived stress, systolic

51. Back massage intervention for improving health and sleep quality among intensive care unit patients. (Abstract)

Back massage intervention for improving health and sleep quality among intensive care unit patients. A massage may relax muscles, improve blood circulation and reduce pain and anxiety while also improving sleep quality by increasing comfort. However, there is little research on whether a back massage improves sleep quality in intensive care unit (ICU) patients.This study examined the effects of a back massage on improving vital signs, sleep quality, anxiety and depression among ICU (...) patients.Adopting a quasi-experimental design, convenience sampling was used to recruit ICU patients from a medical centre in Southern Taiwan. The experimental group received back massages for three consecutive days (n = 30), while controls received usual care (n = 30).The Verran and Snyder-Halpern Scale and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale were used, and subjective and objective sleep time (wrist actigraphy and sleep duration from nurse observations) was recorded.

52. Effects of Adding Interferential Therapy Electro-Massage to Usual Care after Surgery in Subacromial Pain Syndrome: A Randomized Clinical Trial. (Full text)

Effects of Adding Interferential Therapy Electro-Massage to Usual Care after Surgery in Subacromial Pain Syndrome: A Randomized Clinical Trial. Subacromial pain syndrome (SAPS) is a prevalent condition that results in loss of function. Surgery is indicated when pain and functional limitations persist after conservative measures, with scarce evidence about the most-appropriate post-operative approach. Interferential therapy (IFT), as a supplement to other interventions, has shown to relieve (...) musculoskeletal pain. The study aim was to investigate the effects of adding IFT electro-massage to usual care after surgery in adults with SAPS. A randomized, single-blinded, controlled trial was carried out. Fifty-six adults with SAPS, who underwent acromioplasty in the previous 12 weeks, were equally distributed into an IFT electro-massage group or a control group. All participants underwent a two-week intervention (three times per week). The control group received usual care (thermotherapy, therapeutic

56. Using Pressure Massage for Achilles Tendinopathy: A Single-Blind, Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing a Novel Treatment Versus an Eccentric Exercise Protocol. (Full text)

Using Pressure Massage for Achilles Tendinopathy: A Single-Blind, Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing a Novel Treatment Versus an Eccentric Exercise Protocol. Eccentric exercises are the only conservative treatment that has shown good clinical results in studies of Achilles tendinopathy (AT), but success rates vary, indicating the need for alternative treatments. Soft tissue treatments are widely used for AT, but strong scientific evidence is lacking to support those treatments.This study (...) aimed to determine whether pressure massage to the calf muscles is a useful treatment for AT and to compare this treatment versus an eccentric exercise protocol. Our first hypothesis was that pressure massage treatment is equivalent or superior to eccentric exercises with regard to pain reduction time (ie, pain would be reduced more quickly with pressure massage). The second hypothesis was that pressure massage is equivalent or superior to eccentric exercises with regard to function of the calf

59. Case report: electrical automated massage chair use can induce osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture. (Abstract)

Case report: electrical automated massage chair use can induce osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture. This case report describes a case of an elderly woman diagnosed with acute osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF) at thoracic spine after using an electrical automated massage chair (EAMC). Care should be taken when using an EAMC, especially by those with or at risk of developing osteoporosis. Osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF) is a common problem among elderly (...) population and presents a high burden to society. Osteoporotic fractures may occur after a minimal trauma of the vertebrae. Electrical automated massage chair (EAMC) is a device that uses a programmed algorithm to perform automated massage. The massage chair, a popular device among elderly with back pain, relies on friction and rhythmic tapping created by a motorized roller. However, research regarding the safety of this device is lacking, especially in the perspective of OVCF. We present a case

Short-term effects of massage with olive oil on the severity of uremic restless legs syndrome: A double-blind placebo-controlled trial. Although the efficacy of olive oil massage has been established for different disorders, no studies have yet focused on the effect of olive oil massage on restless legs syndrome (RLS). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the short-term effects of massage with olive oil in reducing the severity of uremic RLS.This double-blind placebo-controlled trial (...) was conducted on 60 patients with uremic RLS (mean age: 51.96 ± 10.15), who were randomly divided into olive oil and placebo groups. The olive oil group received massage with olive oil, while the placebo group received massage with liquid paraffin twice a week during hemodialysis sessions for three weeks. For each leg, 10 mL of the olive oil or placebo was applied and then massaged for five min from the plantar surface of the foot to the area below the knee.
