Body structures and functions
Structure of Care
Process of Care
Outcomes of Care
Functions of Care
A person has multiple dimensions: spirit, brain and body structures and function, activity capacity, ability to participate in society, and wellness behaviors.
The environment in which and individual exists cannot influence his or her level of wellness.
There is no continuum or progression through varying levels of disease and health to wellness.
An individual's level of wellness can affect any aspect of his or her person at any point in the individual's life, and vice versa.
Treatment of Impairments
Prevention of Secondary Impairments
All of the above
Understand the potential therapeutic effects of massage and the evidence for those effects
Identify which of the client's body strctures and functions she can appropriately treat with massage techniques
Determine the duration of the intervention she is going to provide
Determine whether she is treating the client's impairments or providing a wellness intervention

The client has a referral from a physician
The client has a chronic illness and seeks ongoing maintenance care
The treatment is focused on one or more of the client's impairments
The therapist can identify appropriate wellness-related goals for the client
The steps in the Evaluative Phase revolve around formulating and confirming a clinical hypothesis about the cleint's clinical problem or wellness goals.
The steps in the Treatment Planning Phase involve identifying body structures and functions that are appropriate for treatment and selecting treatment techniques that will produce improvements in the client's impairments in body structures and functions, functional limitations, or overall wellness.
The Treatment Phase is an ongoing cycle of treatment, re-examination, and treatment progression that begins the moment the therapist completes the client history.
The Discharge Phase involves the transition of the client from the therapist's care to self-care or to treatment by another therapist.
Treatment Planning Phase
Treatment Planning Phase
Therapists use different examination approaches for clients with neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, or psychoneuroimmunological conditions.
Therapists can use the same examination approach for clients with neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, psychoneuroimmunological conditions.
The client examination consits of the selection, application, and interpretation of trial treatment techniques.
The components of the client examination are independent of the treatment environment in which the therapist works.
The client presents with a referral from a health care provider
The therapist has the legal right and the clinical competence to treat the client's condition
The client has impairments that are not contraindicated for the use of massage techniques
The client has requested a massage

The therapist generates the plan of care during the Treatment Planning Phase.
It is unlikely that a plan of care will consist only of massage techniques.
The therapist generates the plan of care in consultation with the client.
The plan of care consists of the list of treatment techniques.
It selects techniques based only on client preference
It uses a linear decision making process
It classifies massage techniques based on the tissue layer they treat
Modification of treatment is not required because outcomes are used
A and c
Decreased strength of hamstrings
Inability to drive more than 10 minutes without pain
Inability to reach for objects overhead without pain
Inability to lift groceries out of the car without pain
Provides a record of the client's impairments and functional level at discharge
Promotes reliance on the expertise of the RMT
Documents client status but is only necessary for insurance cases
Discharge examinations are not done
Identifying functional outcomes
Identifying treatable impairments
Generating a clinical problem list
All are part of the treatment planning phase
