What conditions in your clients have you seen most this year? Upcoming Topics I'm a massage therapy student, but the clients that I have seen so far in school have had shoulder issues. Either from work or home, shoulder pain and tightness are my most common. APRIL ROJAS BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA Chronic neck/shoulder pain. The body was not meant to sit at a desk 8–10 hours a day! REBECCA TAMM Since I began my massage and bodywork career, the most noticeable complaints in most of my patients/clients are upper neck and shoulder stiffness from sitting at a computer desk too long, or from lack of exercise and relaxation time. I have also noticed that a lot of the people complaining of low-back pain have a tilt or rotation in their pelvis resulting in herniation or bulging discs. ALEXANDRA Most recently, I've seen a significant uptick in my clients' work- related stress. MARYANNE GILBERT Neck, shoulder, and upper-back pain/tension. MARIAH BROOKS Not a huge difference in rank between these, but will put in order. 1. Shoulder. 2. Knee. 3. Low back. 4. Upper thoracic vertebral and rib. 5. Surprisingly, neck isn't number one, but everyone loves neck work. 6. Hip mobility, associated with number two (knee) and IT band requests. ART RIGGS
