141. The lowering of bilirubin levels in patients with neonatal jaundice using massage therapy: A randomized, double-blind clinical trial. (Abstract)

The lowering of bilirubin levels in patients with neonatal jaundice using massage therapy: A randomized, double-blind clinical trial. Due to the effects of massage on various laboratory parameters (including those related to jaundice) in infants and the expansion of existing studies to achieve effective and safe therapy in the treatment of neonatal jaundice, this study aimed to investigate the effect of massage on bilirubin levels in cases of neonatal jaundice.In this study, 134 patients were (...) randomly assigned to either an intervention group (massage combined with phototherapy, n=67) or a control group (phototherapy only, n=67). In both groups, serum total bilirubin level and frequency of daily bowel movements were measured and compared during each of the first four days of treatment.Baseline levels of bilirubin were similar between the two groups (P>0.05). During the measurements obtained post-intervention, significant differences surfaces between the two groups in bilirubin levels

A randomised crossover trial comparing Thai and Swedish massage for fatigue and depleted energy. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and social constructions of Thai massage (TM) and Swedish massage (SM) for patients experiencing fatigue or depleted energy.Twenty participants were randomised to receive three once-weekly TM treatments and three once-weekly SM treatments, with crossover after three massages. Symptom checklists were administered at three time points and included (...) Activation-Deactivation Adjective Check List and VAS Scale. Qualitative data were collected through semi-structured interviews and participants' diary entries.Both massage types enhanced physical, emotional and mental wellbeing through improved sleep, relaxation, relief of stress and relief of muscular tension. TM alone showed specific energising and psychological stimulation results, along with carry-over effect and longer lasting benefits. Ninety-five percent of participants found relief from

144. Effect of wound massage on neck discomfort and voice changes after thyroidectomy. (Abstract)

Effect of wound massage on neck discomfort and voice changes after thyroidectomy. Neck discomfort and voice change are common complications after thyroidectomy. These symptoms might be due to damaged laryngeal nerves, intrinsic structures, or extralaryngeal muscles. They can also occur without injury to any structure as with wound adhesion after thyroidectomy. The objective of this study was to determine causes of neck discomfort and voice change after thyroidectomy and to evaluate the effect (...) of wound massage on symptom relief.Forty-five female patients who underwent total thyroidectomy were included (21 in the experimental group and 24 in the control group). Wound massage was used as an intervention to release surgical adhesion. After wound massage education, participants in the experimental group received wound massage from 4 to 12 weeks after thyroidectomy. Analysis was performed for both groups.No laryngeal pathology was found after thyroidectomy. The experimental group had

149. Massage can (re-)activate the lower limb sensorimotor representation of older adult inpatients. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Massage can (re-)activate the lower limb sensorimotor representation of older adult inpatients. Understanding how changes in afferent signal processing may impact the sensorimotor processes is essential for physical therapists whose objective is to actively improve the reorganization of motor function in patients suffering from sensorimotor system disturbance. Because the sensorimotor processes are slowed with the advance in age, we examined whether a single massage session can reactivate (...) the sensorimotor processes of older adult inpatients. Participants were randomly assigned to the experimental (with massage) or control (without massage) groups. Massage was realized on both feet with 7.30 min spent on each foot (Experiment 1), the right foot or the right foot and knee for 10 min (Experiment 2). Body and nonbody mental rotation tasks were used to assess the lower limb motor representation before (pretest), immediately after (Posttest 1) and 24 hr after the massage (Posttest 2). Results showed

152. [Classical Massage and Acupuncture in Chronic Back Pain - Non-Inferiority Randomised Trial]. (Abstract)

[Classical Massage and Acupuncture in Chronic Back Pain - Non-Inferiority Randomised Trial]. Currently, there is a need for scientific evidence on the efficacy of classical massage therapy for chronic, unspecific back pain, especially for the improvement in functional impairment and long-term pain reduction. According to the National Health Care Guidelines, classical massage for nonspecific low back pain may only be prescribed in combination with exercise therapy and a share of the remuneration (...) . Acupuncture, on the other hand, is recognised in the guidelines as an independent treatment for chronic back pain and is remunerated by health insurance companies. This raises the question of whether classical massage therapy is not inferior compared to acupuncture, based on the therapy of the GERAC study. The Clinic of Naturopathy in Blankenstein, Hattingen uses classical massage therapy subjectively successfully in patients with back pain. To objectify the success of the treatment, a randomised

157. A placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of massaging on infantile colic using a random-effects joint model. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of massaging on infantile colic using a random-effects joint model. Infantile colic viewed as a non-dangerous prevalent issue could lead to stress in parents and long-term negative consequences in ex-colicky children. Researchers have not been successful in finding a certain treatment for colic symptoms. Studies suggest completely different approaches as its treatment. Massage therapy as an alternative method in reducing colic (...) symptoms has been recommended in several studies.A total of 100 colicky infants in a single blind study were randomly specified to two equal groups of intervention and control. Infants in the intervention group received massage for 15-20 minutes once during the day and once at night before sleep, while infants in the control group were rocked for 15-25 minutes when the symptoms of colic appeared. Parents recorded the details of the colic symptoms in a diary every day. All these outcomes were modeled

Roller massage decreases spinal excitability to the soleus. Roller massage (RM) interventions have shown acute increases in range of motion (ROM) and pain pressure threshold (PPT). It is unclear whether the RM-induced increases can be attributed to changes in neural or muscle responses. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of altered afferent input via application of RM on spinal excitability, as measured with the Hoffmann (H-) reflex. A randomized within-subjects design (...) in modulation of the inhibition. Roller massage-induced neural modulation of spinal excitability may explain previously reported increases in ROM and PPT. NEW & NOTEWORTHY Recent evidence indicates that the benefits of foam rolling and roller massage are primarily accrued through neural mechanisms. The present study attempts to determine the neuromuscular response to roller massage interventions. We provide strong evidence of roller massage-induced neural modulation of spinal excitability to the soleus

Massage-based bedtime routine: impact on sleep and mood in infants and mothers. Establishment of a consistent bedtime routine is often recommended to families with young children with sleep difficulties. However, there are limited studies assessing specific bedtime routines in the treatment of infant and toddler sleep disturbances.
