Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults who had seen a practitioner for massage during the past 12 months (MASYR) and who had used massage for a specific health problem (MASTREAT), MASNOCONV identifies those who had received no conventional medical treatment for the condition for which they most used massage (MASTCONMOST).
The survey question for MASNOCONV collected information about the use of specific conventional medical treatments for the condition for which massage was used the most, if the person had received conventional medical treatment. The specific treatments asked about were:
- Mental health counseling (MASCOUN)
- Prescription medications (MASPMED)
- Over-the-counter medications (MASNPMED)
- Physical therapy (MASPT)
- Surgery (MASSURG)
Interviewers asked, "Did you receive any of these conventional medical treatments for [condition for which massage was used the most]?" and entered all treatments reported by the respondent.
