In the first instance the treatment is given to in-
crease the circulation in and around the joint, to pro-
mote absorption, and to squeeze exudations out of the

and digestive organs.

Massage should not he used in any cases of high
fever, cancer, ulcers, hemorrhages, infectious diseases,
or diseases where the inflammatory products have as-
sumed a quality injurious to the system, nor in most
skin diseases.
