I'm a massage therapist with a client who is requesting massage for pain associated with a Tarlov cyst. I've researched this condition in order to treat him to the best of my ability but I would like any advice or suggestions from anyone who has this disorder and has received massage therapy to relieve the pain. I don't want to do anything that would make him any worse! I've read that massage can be helpful but I also understand that trauma can activate the cyst. Certainly I don't want to give too deep a pressure. Please help me help my client. And medical advice would be appreciated also.
