my client had a blood clot in his leg over Christmas. he was given an injection and medication to dissolve the clot. Could anyone tell me what the recommended length of time is before its safe to treat with massage again. I thought 2 or 3 months but am unsure.
I have been told 6 months - as both a therapist and patient.
. 6 months
hes not going to be a happy chappy but better safe than sorry.
much appreciated x
Yeah 6 months are minimum. You risk hurting the patient at the clot area with massage.
