Using Levine’s theory, people with low back pain seek treatment attempting to restore structural integrity. It is then the responsibility of the advance practice nurse to recognize patient response and to then guide and support appropriate treatment choices such as massage therapy.
Massage or touch in itself has different cultural implications. Some cultures consider touch another, especially in the manner of massage, taboo. Other cultures believe strongly in the healing power of touch.
Issues for both the prescriber of the therapy and the therapist. Practitioner must eliminate detrimental causes of pain before prescribing massage (i.e. DVT for leg pain as massage could dislodge and cause PE). Therapist must work within their scope of practice. If a patient discloses symptoms to a therapist, they should refer them to PCP instead of trying to manage themselves).
