Om Lectures on the Use of Massage and Early
Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. In any case of recent simple fracture, unless the local condition of the skin from blistering or other causes is contra-indicative, massage cannot be com menced too soon with a View to the relief Of pain and the prevention of spasm. The soothing effect upon irritable muscles in the majority of cases is most remarkable, in some instances rendering an apparently unmanageable fracture quite amenable to ordinary methods of reduction, which could not otherwise be effected without operation - a result the value of which in some subjects can hardly be over-estimated. The ease with which a difficult fracture can be maniprilated after it has been subjected to gentle, smooth rubbing is often a revelation to those who have had no experience in the matter.
