PODCAST: CTE: “I Have a Client Who . . .”

A client is a former NFL linebacker with CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). What is going on inside his head? And is it safe for the massage therapist to work with him?

CTE is part of a range of head injuries that includes traumatic brain injury, concussion, and post-concussion syndrome. We don’t have a lot of information about massage therapy in this context, but we can get enough information to look for good ways to help.

Listen to "CTE: I Have a Client Who . . . Pathology Conversation with Ruth Werner" now, then check out The ABMP Podcast at abmp.com/podcasts or subscribe to the podcast in the Apple Podcast Store, Google Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube, or wherever you access your favorite podcasts.
