But when treating a client suffering from Whiplash with a SCM that’s hypertoned, tender or has trigger points, its pretty much a requirement for a clinical massage therapist to have the skills to avoid the anterior endangerment zone yet treat the muscle effectively, with ease, and safely for both the client and therapist.
