This case concerns a female patient with MS who signed up for massage therapy treatments and ultimately passed away from severe complications. The massage clinic was self-advertised as a specialized practice for clients with MS, and had been recommended to the patient as one of the best of its kind in the area. The woman arrived slightly late on the day of her schedule appointment and was rushed in without ever giving her full medical history. During the massage, she suffered a vertebral artery dissection and was rushed to the hospital, where her health rapidly declined and she passed away. An expert in massage therapy for patients with MS was needed to determine whether the actions of the clinic constituted a breach in the standard of care.
