A 51 year-old woman with a history of ureteral stenosis and calculi noted recurrence of severe left flank pain while undergoing a deep body massage using the Rolfing method. Displacement of her left ureteral double J stent was noted in the emergency department. The pain and associated incontinence resolved with restoration of the stent to its original position. Practitioners should be aware of this potential complication related to forceful massage pressures.
