Is there any risk in deep tissue massage displacing a carotid stent?
Procedure was done just over a year ago and follow up CT scans show no restenosis, good flow, etc. I have chronic neck issues and massage therapy is extremely helpful.

Thank you for posting your query.

Deep tissue massage is safe in your case, and there is no risk of dislodging or disturbing the carotid stent because of that.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries.
