"Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients' formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain, both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits.This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger points--tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Restricted circulation and lack of oxygen in these points cause referred pain. Massage of the trigger is the safest, most natural, and most effective form of pain therapy. Trigger points create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. Trigger point massage increases circulation and oxygenation in the area and often produces instant relief.The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition, has made a huge impact among health professionals and the public alike, becoming an overnight classic in the field of pain relief. This edition includes a new chapter by the now deceased author, Clair Davies' daughter, Amber Davies, who is passionate about continuing her father's legacy. The new edition also includes postural assessments and muscle tests, an illustrated index of symptoms, and clinical technique drawings and descriptions to assist both practitioners and regular readers in assessing and treating trigger points.If you have ever suffered from, or have treated someone who suffers from myofascial trigger point pain, this is a must-have book"--"This new edition of the bestselling Trigger Point Therapy Workbook outlines user-friendly and updated methods of self-massage to help relieve pain.

I heard of this book many years ago, but somehow never got around to reading it until now. That was a mistake. This is a fantastic guide to relieving the aches and pains that are the common lot of all humanity. The author recommends using a different style of treatment than the traditional "press and hold" that I learned years ago -- using deep, short strokes instead. I've been trying this and I do think it may be an improvement. If so, then the book is worth it just for that. That's not including the extensive illustrations covering the entire body, demonstrating the most likely trigger points and offering tips on treating them.

Recommended to anyone with a body that has any aches and pains, ever. ( )

Drug-free, self-care solutions to chronic pain.

Skilled clinicians recognize myofacial trigger points as the most common cause of musculoskeletal pain, but finding a truly skilled practitioner can be difficult. The guidance of this book can serve practitioners who have yet to understand the nature of their own musculoskeletal pain and can also benefit patients who are unable to find a practitioner adequately skilled in this neglected subject.
