Massage application for occupational low back pain in nursing staff

Borges TP, Greve JM, Monteiro AP, da Silva RE, Giovani AM, da Silva MJ

ABSTRACT"

This is a clinical trial which aims to evaluate the efficiency of massage in the reduction of occupational low back pain, and its influence on the performance of work and life activities for the nursing team. The sample consisted of 18 employees who received seven to eight sessions after their work period. From the Numerical Pain Rating Scale, significant improvements were found between the 3rd and 1st evaluations (p=0.000) and between the 3rd and 2nd (p=0.004), using the Wilcoxon test. Regarding the Oswestry Disability Index, the paired t test showed a statistical difference (p=0.02) between the baseline, with a mean of 21.33% and the second evaluation (18.78%), which was also seen between the second and third evaluation (16.67%). The score for the Handling and Transfer Risk Evaluation Scale was 18 points (medium risk). It is concluded that massage was effective in reducing occupational low back pain, and provided improvement in activities of work and life.

BACKGROUND:

Pre-hypertension is considered as a cardiovascular disease predicator. Management of pre-hypertension is an appropriate objective for clinicians in a wide range of medical centers. Treatment of pre-hypertension is primarily non-pharmacological, one of which is massage therapy that is used to control the BP. This study aimed to evaluate the survival effect of Swedish massage (face, neck, shoulders, and chest) on BP of the women with pre-hypertension.

METHODS:

This was a single-blind clinical trial study. Fifty pre-hypertensive women selected by simple random sampling which divided into control and test groups. The test group (25 patients) received Swedish massage 10-15 min, 3 times a week for 10 sessions and the control groups (25 patients) also were relaxed at the same environment with receiving no massage. Their BP was measured before and after each session and 72 h after finishing the massage therapy. Analyzing the data was done using descriptive and inferential statistical methods (Chi- square, Mann-Whitney, paired t-test and Student t-test) through SPSS software.

RESULTS:

The results indicated that mean systolic and diastolic BP in the massage group was significantly lower in comparison with the control group (P < 0.001). Evaluation of durability of the massage effects on BP also indicated that 72 h after finishing the study, still there was a significant difference between the test and control groups in systolic and diastolic BP (P < 0.001).

CONCLUSIONS:

Findings of the study indicated that massage therapy was a safe, effective, applicable and cost-effective intervention in controlling BP of the pre-hypertension women and it can be used in the health care centers and even at home.

Massage on Experimental Pain in Healthy Females: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Karlson CW, Hamilton NA, Rapoff MA

SOURCE:

University of Mississippi Medical Center, USA.

ABSTRACT:

This randomized controlled study evaluated the effect of massage on affect, relaxation, and experimental pain induced by electrical stimulation. Participants were 96 healthy women (M age = 20.13 ± 5.93 years; 84.4% White) randomly assigned to a 15-minute no-treatment control, guided imagery, massage or massage plus guided imagery condition. Multilevel piecewise modeling revealed no group differences in pain intensity, threshold, or tolerance. The two massage conditions generally reported decreased pain unpleasantness, lower unpleasant affect, maintenance of pleasant affect, and increased relaxation compared to the no-treatment condition. The results suggest that massage may alter immediate affective qualities in the context of pain.

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the therapeutic effect of lumbar tender point deep tissue massage plus lumbar traction on chronic non-specific low back pain using change in pressure pain threshold, muscle hardness and pain intensity as indices.

METHODS:

We randomly divided 64 patients into a treatment group (32 cases) and a control group (32 cases). Two drop-outs occurred in each group. Patients in the treatment group received tender point deep tissue massage plus lumbar traction and patients in the control group received lumbar traction, alone. We used a tissue hardness meter/algometer and visual analog scale (VAS) to assess the pressure pain threshold, muscle hardness and pain intensity.

RESULTS:

Following treatment, we obtained the following results in the treatment and control groups, respectively: the pressure pain threshold difference was 1.5 +/- 0.8 and 1.1 +/- 0.7; the muscle hardness difference was 4.2 +/- 1.6 and 3.5 +/- 1.3; and the VAS score difference was 1.9 +/- 0.9 and 1.4 +/- 0.8. Compared to the control group, the treatment group had higher pressure pain threshold (t = 2.09, P < 0.05), and lower muscle hardness (t = 2.05, P < 0.05) and pain intensity (t = 2.46, P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Lumbar tender point deep tissue massage combined with lumbar traction produced better improvement in pressure pain threshold, muscle hardness and pain intensity in patients with chronic non-specific low back pain than with lumbar traction alone.

Massage for perioperative pain and anxiety in placement of vascular access devices

Rosen J, Lawrence R, Bouchard M, Doros G, Gardiner P, Saper R

SOURCE:

Jennifer.Rosen@bmc.org

CONTEXT:

Despite major advances in cancer treatment, many patients undergo painful procedures during treatment and suffer debilitating side effects as well as report a decrease in quality of life (QOL). This problem is exacerbated for low-income, racial, and ethnic minorities with cancer. Minority cancer patients often enter care with larger tumors and with a more aggressive disease, increasing the risk of debilitating symptoms, such as pain and anxiety. Researchers have never assessed the feasibility and effectiveness of offering massage therapy for low-income, underserved cancer patients who are undergoing port insertion.

OBJECTIVE:

This study examined the feasibility of conducting a randomized, controlled trial (RCT) that would assess the use of massage therapy to reduce pain and anxiety in urban patients with cancer who undergo surgical placement of a vascular access device (port). The study also assessed the effectiveness of the intervention in reducing perioperative pain and anxiety.

DESIGN:

The research team conducted a 9-month RC T of 60 cancer patients undergoing port placement. The research team randomly assigned patients in a 2:1 ratio to usual care with massage therapy (intervention group) versus usual care with structured attention (control group).

SETTING:

The study took place at Boston Medical Center (BMC), which is an urban, tertiary-referral, safety-net hospital.

PARTICIPANTS:

Participants were cancer patients undergoing port placement. Sixty-seven percent were racial or ethnic minorities, and the majority were female and unemployed, with annual household incomes <$30 000 and publicly funded health insurance coverage.

INTERVENTION:

For the intervention, an expert panel developed a reproducible, standardized massage therapy intended for individuals undergoing surgical port insertion. Both groups received 20-minute interventions immediately pre- and postsurgery. The research team collected data on pain and anxiety before and after the preoperative and postoperative interventions as well as 1 day after the surgery.

OUTCOME MEASURES:

With respect to feasibility, the study examined (1) data about recruitment--time to complete enrollment and proportion of racial and ethnic minorities enrolled; (2) participants' retention; and (3) adherence to treatment allocation. The efficacy outcomes included measuring (1) participants' average pain level using an 11-point numerical rating scale (0 = no pain to 10 = worst possible pain) and (2) participants' situational anxiety using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI).

RESULTS:

The research team assigned the 60 patients to the groups over 53 weeks. Sixty-seven percent of the participants were racial or ethnic minorities. A majority were female and unemployed, with annual household incomes <$30 000 and publicly funded health insurance coverage. Of the 40 patients allocated to massage therapy, the majority (n = 33) received both the pre- and postoperative interventions. Massage therapy participants had a statistically significant, greater reduction in anxiety after the first intervention compared with individuals receiving structured attention (-10.27 vs -5.21, P = .0037).

CONCLUSIONS:

Recruitment of low-income, minority patients into an RCT of massage therapy for perioperative pain and anxiety is feasible. Both massage therapy and structured attention proved beneficial for alleviating preoperative anxiety in cancer patients undergoing port placement.
